But most of the time, that is what happens. One city can act as four in the span of a couple of months. This phenomenon also includes Canadian cities. There are so many iconic movies that were filmed in Canada.

Titanic is probably one of the most remembered movies ever. If someone hasn't heard of Titanic they probably turn heads whenever they admit to it. It was also Leonardo Dicaprio's rise to fame! Who will ever forget that?
Guess what? Titanic was filmed in Canada. During the real sinking of the Titanic in 1912, the closest port was Halifax, Nova Scotia. While filming the movie they decided to film all their ocean scenes near the real iceberg that the Titanic crashed into.
