For those looking for an adventure

  • Superman II (1980)
    Watch Superman save the day as he makes an incredible rescue at the Horseshoe Falls. Adventure (later) to Terrapin Point to see where this scene went down!
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (2007)
    It’s no surprise that shots of Niagara Falls, with over 700,000 gallons of water flowing per second, were used to help create this film’s water-based effects.

For those who need a good laugh

  • Canadian Bacon (1995)
    Starring the late John Candy—throughout the comedy you'll spot beautiful shots of Niagara Falls, and the Robert Moses Power Plant.

  • Tammy (2014)
    Add Niagara Falls to your bucket list, and take note to face the elements on the Hurricane Desk, just like Tammy. Save the Cheetos for afterwards!

For those with little ones at home

  • WALL•E (2008)
    Close your eyes and listen closely to hear the power of the Falls used for the sounds of wind in this animated family favorite.

For those who can’t get enough of the drama

  • Niagara (1953)
    Watch it all unravel at Niagara Falls the "Honeymoon Capital of the World", with the one and only, Marilyn Monroe.

  • Marshall (2016)
    Admire the Niagara Falls Public Library, and other historic buildings throughout Buffalo, NY, seen in this motion picture set in the 1940s.

For those who love “The Office"

We feel as though this deserves its own category! Binge watch for the first or millionth time, The Office, season 6, episodes 4 and 5. Both episodes revolve around the most iconic Niagara Falls nuptials, featuring Jim and Pam saying their "I do's" aboard the iconic Maid of the Mist (even though we know it was "plan C," according to Jim!).
