Kingpin

Comedy

Directed By: Bobby & Peter Farrelly (Dumb & Dumber)

A drunk and swindler comes to Reno, big surprise, to win big at bowling. Kingpin was directed by the makers of Dumb and Dumber. Because of this, you know you will be watching an antic-filled film. Many, many scenes shot in the National Bowling Stadium and other parts of town. A fun watch.

The Wizard

Action & Adventure, Comedy

Starring: Fred Savage, Beau Bridges, Christian Slater

Directed By: Todd Holland (Malcolm in the Middle)

One of my favorites growing up, this movie centers around a trio of kids traveling to a video game competition. There are scenes shot in Reno, Fallon and Hazen. Plus some shots at the Peppermill before they remodeled.

Sister Act

Comedy, Music

Starring: Whoopi Goldberg, Maggy Smith, Kathy Najmy

Directed By: Emile Ardolino (Dirty Dancing)

What’s more Reno than a local lounge singer witnessing a murder. Typical Reno. Of course, the cops want to hide their witness in a bay area convent, also typical Reno. I could really see this happening to a lot of my friends. Great film.

The Misfits

Action & Adventure, Drama, Western

Starring: Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift

Directed By: John Huston (The Maltese Falcon, Chinatown)

A rollercoaster of a plot involving an ex-stripper, a gambler, a vet, and a rodeo rider. Most importantly, many scenes of 1960s downtown Reno and a few scenes shot out around Pyramid Lake.

Top Gun

Action & Adventure, Drama, Bromance

Starring: Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer

Directed By: Tony Scott (Numb3rs, Prometheus)

Many of the action-packed dogfights were filmed over Fallon’s Naval Air Station. This was back when they still hosted the airshow (which my grandparents took me to regularly ❤) at the airbase. Because of that, Top Gun was an instant favorite for little me. Bromances aside, this film is still one I enjoy.

Waking up in Reno

Comedy, Romance

Starring: Natasha Richardson, Charlize Theron, Billy Bob Thornton

Directed By: Jordan Brady (The Third Wheel)

Two couples travel to Reno for a monster truck show. Unfortunately an affair between the couples causes some crazy antics. Plenty of scenes of Reno around 2000-2001. A fun movie to watch but don’t expect a deep plot.

Director: Phillip Noyce(Salt, Patriot Games)

He needs to save the son of a fellow soldier. The good news, he is a trained swordfighter. The other good news, he’s blind?? This comedy has scenes shot in downtown Reno with some shots around the arch that will get your attention.

Love Ranch

Comedy, Drama, Romance

Starring: Helen Mirren, Joe Pesci, Sergio Peris-Mencheta

Directed By: Taylor Hackford (The Devil’s Advocate, Ray)

A film about the owners of the first brothel in Nevada has plenty of scenes at the brothel and a few under the arch downtown. This film is pretty hard to find, so check back in to see if they are streaming it anywhere new. (You can buy it on Playstation’s digital network as of Mar 2019)

The Muppets

Action & Adventure, Comedy

Starring: Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper

Directed By: James Bobin (Alice Through the Looking Glass)

The 2011 Muppets Movie has Fozzy Bear playing a lounge singer at the Bonanza Casino. They lean hard into the trope that Reno is a dump. Which I am honestly fine with, property prices are high enough and too many people are coming to the area.  There are a few scenes shot here locally that should be easy to point out. Because of that, we think this cheeky movie is worth a watch.
