Have you ever watched a movie and thought to yourself, “That place looks awfully familiar. Wasn’t it in that other movie too?” Turns out, your inkling is probably correct as Hollywood simply loves to use the same locations over and over again.

For example, according to the website Go Compare, Central Park in New York City has been used as a filming location 231 times. Venice Beach in California has clocked in 161 times, while Greenwich Village in New York City comes in at a close third with 160 movie credits.

Of course movies are filmed outside of New York City and Los Angeles, too. Go Compare compiled some very useful information for movie buffs and scoured IMDB records to find out what each state’s most-filmed locations actually are.

“To define a top location in each state, we went as granular as we could to isolate a specific building, landmark or city,” Go Compared said in a statement. As an example, the site found that in the great state of Ohio, Mansfield Reformatory was used as the filming location for the "Shawshank Redemption." And in Minnesota, the Mall of America was used as a filming location for both "Jingle All The Way" and "The Mighty Ducks."
