The other day I was wondering about movies filmed in DC, and if any have been filmed in Columbia Heights. Off the top of my head, I thought of D.C. Cab and Syriana.
DC Cab is a pretty crummy (but amusingly crummy) Joel Schumacher movie about a cab company staffed by Mr. T, Gary Busey, Bill Maher, Adam Baldwin, and some wrestlers called the Barbarian Brothers. They have a food fight against another cab company inside Florida Avenue Grill, which is kind of funny. The other one is a little more subtle -- in Syriana, Jeffrey Wright's character is jogging up the hill on 13th Street next to Cardozo High School when a car stops to talk to him.
Doing a little research, I found a couple of neat things from the Post, which actually list addresses and such. It looks like 1412 Harvard Street NW is mentioned in The Day the Earth Stood Still, and parts of Dave are filmed in Mt. Pleasant. There's also a list of movies filmed in DC from Kitty Tours, but it's nor organized by area.
Know of any other movies filmed in Columbia Heights? Let me know in the comments.
And here's the intro of D.C. Cab. Enjoy?
