10 Amazing Movies Filmed In Indiana

Indiana probably isn’t the first state you think of when you think about all of the places in the world where a movie can be filmed. Surprisingly, there have been a lot of movies filmed in the state of Indiana. The true beauty of this list of ten movies filmed in Indiana is that only some of them are about Indiana. While it makes sense for those movies to be filmed in Indiana, some of these movies were filmed here just because of our scenery and buildings. Transformers, for example, who knew such an action packed movie could be filmed partially in Indiana?!

1.) Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Did you know parts of this Transformers movie were filmed in Gary, Indiana? Pretty neat!

2.) Hoosiers

Parts of Rudy were filmed in South Bend, Indiana.

Some of this exciting movie was filmed in Crown Point, Indiana!

9.) Kinsey (2004)

Bloomington, Indiana seems to be a pretty popular place as scenes from this movie were shot here too!
