My personal favorite for the interior scene at the tragically gutted Canton Casino. Near the beginning of the film, with Ru Paul.

Thanks Neverleft! Now if you would just add the location to all the crime thread titles -- and not just the location for the ones Downtown -- I would be very happy!

There were scenes from Cadillac Records filmed in Jersey City because I remember when they were filming at the school across the street from St. Paul's Church on the corner of Greenville Ave. and Old Bergen Road. I remember seeing Mos Def's trailer set up there.

I just watched a classic The Mating Season on Netflix last night, I don't think it was filmed here; but the leading character in the film is living in Jersey City 1951. Resized Image

Her character owns a hamburger stand somewhere in JC.

Shot in Jersey City.

Shot all over JC. Not a flattering portrayal of the JCPD.

All the interrogation scenes were shot at the East District Station on 7th Street for this one.

If you go to my post #7 and click on "this link has a lot" at the top of the post it gives a decription of each project.

Let’s add MTV's Joww and Snookie Show to the list .

The horror, the horror.

(good thing there we no whiners when JC was used for past productions. We would have missed out on a lot of good entertainment. Could you imagine a world without this 2009 classic…. Nipple Nazis)

oh cool that was them? I was walking back from the Path at night and heard music playing and saw a band playing on top of the iron monkey. I'll be seeing them opening up for the Pogues soon.

It's worth mentioning that the NJ band Titus Andronicus just filmed a music video in JC on February 20th, directed by WFMU DJ Tom Scharpling. The shoot was on the roof of the Iron Monkey, which collapsed under the power of the rawk weight of the extras.

Let’s add this to the long list…..

The Strokes film music video for new single at Loews Theater in Jersey City

Published: Monday, February 21, 2011, 11:05 AM Updated: Monday, February 21, 2011, 11:42 AM
By The Jersey Journal

The Strokes, a critically-acclaimed band from New York City, shot a music video for their latest single at The Landmark Loews Jersey Theatre in Jersey City on Wednesday, as reported by The Jersey Journal.

Theater director Colin Egan said that the band filmed scenes for the video from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Egan said the band chose the movie palace because of its ornate decorations and that the theater has gained a reputation in the entertainment industry for being a great shooting location.

At some point, word got out that the rock band was in Jersey City and fans crowded outside the theater. As band members left the theater, they graciously posed for pictures and signed autographs, Egan said.

The Strokes' single "Under Cover of Darkness" was released Feb. 9 and will be on their new album, "Angles," which will be released March 22.

I have not found this listed anywhere but I'd swear the "White Castle"... is the one on Blvd and Newark ave.

Both the interior (yea, I remember it back when) and the exterior.

Wrong it's Brooklyn:

-“Sid and Nancy” – if you want to see what DTJC was built on watch the last two minutes of the movie. Nice shot of the old Power House. (Wonder if the 2 little homies with the boombox were from JC)

-“The Wrestler” – scenes shot in the soon to be closed Acme over on Garfield. (wonder if the lady ordering the chicken was from JC, she was great)


Sid&Nancy, Great flick, and yes your right, the last 2 minutes of the movie's background is filled with what the DTJC waterfront use to look like before the developers got their hands on it.


Great movie and great shot of DTJC back in the day before rents sky rocketed up 1000%.BTW the powerhouse never changed.

"Saturday Night Fever"

I have not found this listed anywhere but I'd swear the "White Castle"... is the one on Blvd and Newark ave.

Both the interior (yea, I remember it back when) and the exterior.

The movie "Caught" with Edward James Olmos and Maria Conchita Alonso was set in Jersey City and has extensive footage of the waterfront and Owen Grundy Pier before much of the development. The opening credits show the waterfront as a garbage dump with a homeless guy living out of a van among the rocks and garbage. That guy happens to be Arie Verveen, who fans of Sons of Anarchy will recognize. The movie is a poorly-acted and sloppily-directed snoozefest, but the local settings may keep you watching.



I saw that movie well just the scene with Maria Conchita where she is naked..

the restaurant scene on ghost dog was shot on the chinese restaurant on westside and duncan (the one in front of mac's video). I think it's called No. 1 chinese food or something like that.

Although these are listed, here are some details.

The final chase scene of Toxic Avenger... quick and interesting view of Downtown on Columbus before the build up.

Wise Guys: Harsimus Cemetery, the small diner and auto body place that were near Mary Bensen Park and the firehouse on Newark Avenue.

Quiz Show: Inside the old Jersey City Medical Center... old teaching building I think... gave the scenes a cool art deco look.

West Side Ave from the cemetery South to a Chinese takeout place with a parking lot next to it. I lived down in that area years back when they filmed it.

Other movies / videos filmed (apologies if listed already):

Jacobs Ladder (boxing gym / pool hall scene)
George Thorogood's 'Bad to the Bone' video.
