I had no idea how many tremendous movies that I watched growing up were filmed right here in Colorado. While I didn't grow up here, I am loving calling Colorado home, and knowing that so many great movies were filmed here just makes me love this state even more.

The beautiful scenery of Colorado is obviously a big draw when picking a backdrop for a film, which is why it's great to see so many big movies land on the list below.

We didn't get all of the movies filmed in Colorado if you want us to add your favorite to the list (that isn't here already), make sure to leave us a comment.
