About TCM Classic Film Tour
Not only will you get a taste of New York film history, you’ll receive a great sightseeing tour of Manhattan with a local guide. By bus, we’ll take you to neighborhoods rich with history, where some of the most iconic films of all time were made. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at some of your favorite classic films set in New York City, as your guide entertains and showcases over 60 filming locations! See the Empire State Building, featured in King Kong. Shop at the market showcased in Manhattan and You’ve Got Mail. Snap photos where Marilyn Monroe’s skirt flew up in The Seven Year Itch. Go on location to Grand Central Terminal, seen in North by Northwest and Superman. Match Central Park filming locations to movie clips from Thomas Edison Shorts to Ghostbusters. Enjoy a photo-op in front of the famous bridge seen in Woody Allen’s Manhattan.
Some of the tour takes place outdoors, so please dress appropriately for the weather. Please also wear comfortable shoes, as parts of the tour include some walking.
Feel free to bring a camera to capture your favorite locations on film. While videotaping is not allowed on the bus, many attendees film the locations at our several stops along the way.
Please arrive early so we can start on time!
