Toronto’s Most Memorable Movie Moments

Did you guys know they shoot movies in Toronto? It’s true! They shoot all kinds of movies. Big-budget Hollywood blockbusters, artful Canadian dramas, wistful indies, all sorts of stuff. And with the recent announcement that Toronto would be hosting its biggest-budgeted production to date, the forthcoming remake of the 1990 sci-fi epic Total Recall (starring puny girly-man Colin Farrell in the role originally played by Arnold Schwarzenegger), as well the announcement that local boy David Cronenberg would be back in town this summer, shooting his adaptation of Don DeLillo’s Cosmopolis (starring Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson), we thought we’d map some of our favourite T.O. movie moments. Just consider this your very own Hogtown Star Map.

To learn more about the movies that have made their mark in and on Toronto, click the numbered circles on the map—each is also a link to the corresponding edition of Reel Toronto, in which we explore the films’ Toronto-y aspects in detail. (Eight of the ten flicks listed here are clickable.)
