3 Iconic Locations That Seem to Crop Up in Movies

By Film Threat Staff | May 12, 2021

Whilst there are so many different films about so many different subjects, there are certain locations that seem to crop up in more films than others. Here is a look at three of the most iconic locations you can expect to crop up in lots of different films. 


For most of us, a visit to a casino hall would be a rare occurrence. It might even be an event that we reserve for holidays and vacations away. That is, unless you are the like of James Bond who seems to make a visit to a casino hall a regular part of his working week. You might think it is unusual that a spy would visit a casino hall so often, but when you consider that the villains are often extremely rich, it is easy to see why they are attracted to the glamour of casino games. Luckily, you do not have to be either James Bond or one of the villains to be able to play arcade games as frequently as they do. All you need to do is simply join a website like Spin Casino and you can play all of these iconic games whenever you have a free moment. So, whilst the location you are playing probably will not be as glamorous, you can have just as much excitement as these iconic characters no matter where you are in the world. 

Police Station

There are so many reasons why police stations appear in films. It might be that the superheroes have managed to catch the bad guys and they have been arrested awaiting trial. It might be the location where the heroic solicitor chats to their innocent client before they are able to clear their name in the court room. It might simply be that the lead character is down on their luck and has been caught for a minor offence to make matters worse. They do not even have to just be a setting for serious drama, as the hilariously funny Hot Fuzz proves with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. No matter what the reason and no matter how short the scene is within the movie, any scene that happens within a police station will no doubt be a big plot point in any film. 


When you see this setting appear in a movie, you know it is probably for one of two reasons. It could be that the characters are mourning the loss of a much-loved character at a funeral. Failing that, it is highly likely that a scene is set here because the romantic storyline has ended happily with the two couples getting married to each other. Whilst these two events could not be further from each other when it comes to the moods of the characters, there is no doubting that both of these events will bring a lot of drama and emotion to any movie. Some films even managed to cram both of these big life events into one story, not to mention Four Weddings and A Funeral which like the name suggests spends a lot of time in these locations.
