Almost Nobody Knows That Parts Of The Iconic Movie Benny & Joon Were Filmed In This Washington City
Washington State is the backdrop for many memorable movies. Although the Twilight Series filmed numerous scenes in Washington and Oregon, the very real town of Forks, Washington served as the main setting for the five-movie series. However, “Twilight” isn’t the only mythical work of fiction filmed in our state. Coupeville is proud to be known as the small-town location for the 1998 film, “Practical Magic.” The beauty of the Evergreen State and the diversity of landscapes make Washington an ideal choice for movies of all genres. Still, few people know that parts of the movie “Benny & Joon” were filmed in Washington — Spokane, to be exact.
