How many movies with place in the title can you name? This list ranks the best movies with place in the name, whether they're documentaries, dramas, horror movies, or any other genre of film. Do you have a favorite movie with place in the title? Categorizing movies by words in their titles is kind of uncommon, but that's a big part of why this list is so fun to scroll through. There's probably one movie with place in the title you think of right away, but you might be shocked to see how many others exist as well.

Notable films with place in the title include A Place in the Sun, The Place Beyond the Pines, and The Hiding Place, although there are many more examples on this list. This poll is interactive, meaning you can vote the place movies up or down depending on how much you like them.
