If you are one of those curious movie fans who often wonder “Where did they film that?” or you want to visit the filming locations of your favorite movies then this list will make you more than happy. Take a look at these fascinating 25 abandoned movie sets that you can still visit.
Zero Dark Thirty
The Blue Cloud Movie Ranch in California was used for the 2012 blockbuster Zero Dark Thirty. The set is currently unused, and is scattered with props and “locations” from the action thriller.
Pirates of the Caribbean
Wallilabou Anchorage was the principal Caribbean location for Disney’s 2003 blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean. It is still home to many of the props, including replicas of cannons. Many fans visit it annually.
The old Spanish Mission located in Cypress Gardens, South Carolina, was one of Mel Gibson’s favorite sets while filming The Patriot but once the movie was completed it was quickly abandoned.
The Hills Have Eyes
Alexandre Aja, director of this horror film, built Gas Haven in Souss-Massa-Draa, Morocco, specifically for the movie and once the scenes were finished the place was abandoned and nowadays looks even creepier than it did then.
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
This western frontier town in Spain might be remembered as the movie set of the classic The Good, the Bad and the Ugly but was also used for over 200 Westerns during the glory days of this genre. Eventually it was abandoned after the decline in popularity of these films but you can still visit it, especially if you’re a fan of Spaghetti Westerns.
