The disturbingly twisted film directed by Jordan Peele was mostly filmed in Fairhope, but Mobile still makes some appearances. 

The opening scene, in which a Black man is abducted, was filmed on Ryan Avenue and De Leon Avenue, a small neighborhood intersection right off Old Shell Road.

Gerald’s Game, the film adaptation of Stephen King’s 1992 novel, can be considered a Mobile gem. Producer Scott Lumpkin said that at least 85-90% of the film was shot inside the Mobile Civic center.

The film also had Stephen King’s official stamp of approval.

3. The Map of Tiny Perfect Things (2021)

Though Fairhope was the primary filming location for this film, several scenes star Mobile’s very own Dew Drop Inn Restaurant, the oldest restaurant in the city.
