There's a certain type of movie fan who gets a kick out of visiting the place where a favorite film was made. This year's Oscar-nominated films are connected to all kinds of interesting destinations, from a UNESCO World Heritage site in Ireland to a historic movie theater in Canada.
NEW YORK (AP) — A diner in Miami, a house in Pittsburgh and a pier in Los Angeles: All of them are real places where Oscar-nominated movies were filmed.
Part of "Moonlight" was shot in Jimmy's Eastside Diner in Miami. Scenic spots around Los Angeles featured in "La La Land" included the Hermosa Beach Pier. And in Pittsburgh, "Fences" was filmed in a house that perfectly evokes playwright "August Wilson's world," according to his widow.
