Earlier this month, when I was walking down Granville Street late one night, I stumbled upon a crime scene. Riot vans had congregated at the corner of Granville and Pender. There was a huge crowd, and several policemen were yelling into their radios.
Only upon closer inspection did I notice that the riot van said San Francisco Police Department on the side. Turns out I had stumbled onto a movie set for an upcoming TV series.
That got me thinking about how often Vancouver ends up in movies and on TV (often disguised as another city). I did some research and found a few of the top filming locations in the city (many thanks to a great article by John Mackie in the Vancouver Sun).
Below are 5 well known filming spots. If you know more, please comment below:
