Movie Map: Hang a Left at The Mummy’s Tomb

The British Designers We Are Dorothy have created a map of the movies. Cute idea. You can zoom in (but not print) at http://www.fastcodesign.com/1670348/infographic-a-street-map-of-famous-places-in-the-movies and can order it on We Are Dorothy’s site, where they describe it:

A street map made up of over 900 film titles including cinema classics such as Lost Highway, On the Waterfront, Jurassic Park, Reservoir Dogs, Carlito’s Way, Nightmare on Elm Street, Valley of the Dolls and Chinatown.

The Map, which is loosely based on the style of a vintage Los Angeles street map has its own Hollywood Boulevard and includes districts dedicated to Hitchcock and Cult British Horror movies. Like most cities it also has its own Red Light area. There’s an A-Z key at the base of the Map listing all the films featured with their release dates and names of the directors.

They’ve got a sense of humor, among other things putting “Grindhouse” at the end of “Howards End.” But what the hell is “The Mole Man of Belmont Ave?”
