Laurel Hill Cemetery's captivating views are not only the burial grounds to some of Philadelphia's most prominent natives but also has been the set for many major block busters such as Rocky Balboa and Transformers. Permanent film credits include a headstone that marks the grave of the fictional Adrian Balboa, which was used as a prop when the movie "Rocky Balboa" was filmed at the cemetery.
The Philadelphia Museum of Art steps are one of the most recognizable cinematic images in Philadelphia's film history. Made famous by the classic 'Rocky' movie franchise, these steps are the essential filming spot if you want a set that says Philadelphia.
This historic church is not only a wonderful representation of Philadelphia's colonial and revolutionary history (Ben Franklin is buried here) but also offers a beautiful aesthetic. This beauty, coupled with stunning architecture, makes Christ Church a Philadelphian staple perfect for filming.
China Town's eccentric vibe is mirrored through the many Chinese influenced architecture that creates the perfect set for any urban film looking for a cultured laden set.
The storied Franklin Field has had a long history of hosting the University of Pennsylvania's football games as well as famous track events including the Penn Relays held every Spring. The classic architecture as well as smaller capacity of the venue makes this the ideal stadium to film any related sports event in.
