Video Village With Ask Chris: Star Maps


I love this new map from UK designers Dorothy. It makes the locations from hundreds of movies real places by arranging them into a wall map. Sunset Boulevard runs north of it, but that reservoir on the east side (here home to the Island of Dr. Moreau and the Battleship Potemkin) looks suspiciously like Silver Lake. I love that Hostel 2 is right next door to Hostel. Squint real hard and you can make out the creature’s Black Lagoon that’s inside of Jurassic Park. That or pay the £25 and get one for your wall. While you’re looking for Hollywood and Vine, here’s a 1945 film based on our most famous intersection.
