The world of movies is that much more accessible for film buffs and admirers of a special corner of pop culture.
Travel website Expedia understands there is a wide swath of people out there that don’t merely want to relax on holiday; they want to explore.
And many of them are ardent movie lovers who want to see some “Back to the Future” locations or would revel in a “Doctor Who” experience.
Well there is now an Internet destination for you in the form of Expedia’s The World on Screen interactive map, which you can access by that little link there.
Or you can glimpse below.
You can whittle down your search by movie genre or the kind of trip you want to enjoy, such as a road trip or a beachside holiday.
The fun part is simply navigating the map with your mouse and exploring what Hollywood’s expanse has to offer.
Take New York’s “Ghostbusters” locations, for example. Clicking on the link will garner immediate detail on the movie, such as the genre and how well it did at the box office.
But you are here to dig deeper.
Thankfully, there is a map that highlights five locations that were used in the movie, giving you the crucial “where” that will have you reminiscing about classic scenes.
There are also side tips for anyone that desires a bit more. In this case, there is a recommendation for a French bistro and a Whovian side trip.
The website recommends: “If you’re a sci-fi fan, you should materialize at The Way Station - a terrifically quirky Doctor Who-themed bar in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn.”
And that is indicative of the items you will get on the website, which comes by way of people in the know.
Expedia states: “Expedia worked with city and culture bloggers too - to bring you the things to do and places to go you probably won’t find on the tourist trail from great places to eat and amazing places to visit.”
Some of the other movies and shows receiving a spotlight: “Game of Thrones,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Lord of the Rings.”
Now you have your work cut out for you. It starts by re-watching your favorite movies and ends when you book a trip to see where it was all filmed.
