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.

In this episode of “Get Outta Here!” hosted by AP Travel editor Beth J. Harpaz, we’ll chat with Jake Coyle, film critic for The Associated Press, about some of the locations featured in this year’s best films. A few of them might surprise you.

New episodes of “Get Outta Here!” are published every Wednesday. Host Beth J. Harpaz is travel editor for The Associated Press, a volunteer Big Apple Greeter and a licensed tour guide in her native New York City. She recently completed a quest to visit all 50 states.

Before becoming travel editor, where most of the news - thank goodness - is about happy people going on nice vacations, Beth covered politics, disasters and all manner of mayhem for the AP. And not to reveal her age, but she also worked for several newspapers way back in the 20th century and even wrote three books.

She does not own wheeled luggage but instead carries her belongings around the world in an ancient backpack and various tote bags.
