The Illinois Bureau of Tourism has created a cool online listing of movies that have been shot, at least in part, within the Land of Lincoln and helps you find the locations featured in the films. For instance, are you curious about the bar where George Clooney goes to find Matt Damon in Ocean's Eleven? Scroll down on the the "Chicago" page and you'll see Damon was sitting at Emmit's Irish Pub on north Milwaukee Ave. Check out the "Central" list and you'll find out the interior of the Illinois capital building was used as a double for the U.S. Capital when shooting scenes for Legally Blonde 2. The lists also serve as a sort of de facto filmography for director John Hughes, who has used locations throughout the state for a number of his movies.
