Last week Governor Kate Brown signed a bill extending incentives for film and television producers to bring their productions to Oregon. Here's a list to celebrate those efforts.
  1. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

  2. Wild

  3. Stand By Me
    Image
    A classic, filmed in Brownsville, OR.
  4. The Goonies
    Image
    Astoria, OR. I've been to the Goonie house more times that if like to admit.
  5. Coraline
    Image
    Hats off to Laika, here in PDX. Btw I can still say "shot" in Oregon. A lot of this film was stop motion. Correct me if I'm wrong.
  6. The Shining
    Image
    I believe only the exteriors were filmed in Oregon (the beautiful Timberline Lodge).
  7. Elephant
    Image
    An underrated GVS film. I actually went to the casting call for this. Didn't get a part.
  8. Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey
    Image
    I named my first dog Shadow. If you don't love this movie, you have no soul.
  9. Animal House
    Image
    Filmed on location at my beloved alma mater, glorifying over consumption, togas, and all things college.
  10. Drugstore Cowboy
    Image
  11. Kindergarten Cop
    Image
    Another Astoria gem.
  12. Twilight
    Image
    I believe parts were filmed at Indian beach, and forest park here in Oregon. A lot of the film was shot in Washington.
  13. Sometimes a Great Notion
    Image
  14. The Postman

  15. My Own Private Idaho
