The Exorcist Stairs

Georgetown
Washington, DC

One of the most chilling scenes of the flick, and a memorable movie moment, is when Father Karras finally exorcises the demon and is thrown out of Regan’s window, tumbling down the stairs to his death. The site is a must-see for anyone in the DC area, and is still considered a local legend.

Wolfgang Petersen’s In The Line Of Fire, starring Clint Eastwood, John Malkovich, Rene Russo, and Dylan McDermott (just to name a few), practically made this DC bar legendary! It was the watering hole of choice for Eastwood’s character, Secret Service Agent Frank Horrigan.

The Lincoln Memorial

National Mall
Washington, DC

The Lincoln Memorial seems to be the place in movies where lead characters seek solace…Jefferson Smith in Mr. Smith Goes To Washington, Elle Woods in Legally Blonde 2… In Wedding Crashers, John and Jeremy sit on the steps to discuss whether they’re too old to be crashing weddings. It’s a DC Must See.

Reflective Pool

National Mall
Washington, DC

Who can forget the scene in Forrest Gump when Forrest addresses the crowd opposing the war, and Jenny comes running through the water to meet him, and he runs in after her? Classic.

Library of Congress

101 Independence Ave SE
Washington, DC 20540

While it’s been seen in many movies, one of the most memorable is from National Treasure: Book of Secrets, where the library receives 10 minutes of footage within the film.
