What’s the best holiday movie in your home state?


Everyone of course has their own favorite holiday movies, but some states boast having one — or more — of those Christmas classics set within their borders. 

With that in mind, Fandango’s streaming service Vudu surveyed thousands of film fans across the United States to discover their local favorite holiday flicks set in their states.

The result is a map of which classic films are set where, from Los Angeles’ fictional Nakatomi Plaza in Die Hard to New York City-set Elf.

Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis, notes, “As fans search for the perfect holiday movies to watch this season on Vudu, this map offers a fun way to not only discover hidden gems, but to also explore the country through a host of holiday-themed movies.”
