Summer 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of Nora Ephron's beloved rom-com Sleepless in Seattle (1993). While Seattle may be known for coffee, grunge music and throwing fish, there have also been a few films set there (though they aren't always filmed in Seattle). It's curious that despite it being a major US city, far less films have been made/set there than, say, Boston or Nashville or other cities of comparable or smaller size. 

Which of these films which were set AND filmed in Seattle is your favorite?

Re: Seattle-set movies

There have been movies set or partially set in Seattle but filmed in and around Vancouver, British Columbia. Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) and its sequels are recent examples.

Also, consider adding to the list Disclosure (1994) and WarGames (1983).

Unfortunately, Twice in a Lifetime (1985) didn't make the cut. (817 votes).

I'm only including films that were actually filmed in Seattle (not just one or two scenes), not in WA or BC or OR.

I considered both of those films when I made the initial list, but there didn't seem to get enough filming in Seattle to make the cut. Looking back at their filming locations I will add Disclosure but not WarGames.

Jen,
I'm certainly glad I didn't visit the Space Needle during an electrical storm.
