Cinema Sights: Moonrise Kingdom

In World
June 09, 2024

We love watching movies around our house, and every time we watch a movie, I find myself searching for two things: I Shazam a lot of the music, and I look on IMDB as to where the movie was filmed. I’ve always been drawn to the sets, going back to when I saw Dirty Dancing for the first time. I was eleven and wanted to know where the camp they visited for the summer.

I thought it would be fun to explore a movie, learn more about where it was filmed, share how you can visit, and give you links to plan a family trip and walk your cinema steps.

Moonrise Kingdom (Wes Anderson)

I’m a huge Wes Anderson fan, so starting with Moonrise Kingdom seems fitting as we journey to Rhode Island. I’ve rounded up hikes, landmarks, and more for you, all of which can be found in the film. A trip like this would be perfect to plan this upcoming summer, with a lot of hiking and camping packed into a family-fun trip.

I would love to do more locations for you, maybe even complete with a soundtrack for each film. As always, thanks for reading here. Follow on Instagram for more travel ideas, tips, and itineraries. – Erin
