The Real-Life Filming Locations of Famous Sci-fi Dystopias

It's easy to love sci-fi dystopian movies that bring us into all new terrible realities, without actually having to experience those realities for ourselves. If nothing else, they at least make us feel better about our own society. But many of those films set in terrible sci-fi worlds aren't actually filmed on sets, but in real-world locations.

That's why this Atlas Obscura article featuring 14 such film locations is so fascinating. It shows that some of the most haunting and out-of-this-world locations in our favorite dystopias are actually strange and wonderful places in our world.

Back in Architecture school in Arlington (UTA) we would often go to the Ft Worth Water Gardens to sketch... I would always think of Logan's Run when there. And my prom was held at the Dallas Apparel Mart (where much of the interiors were filmed). I've lived a very Logan's Run life, I guess.
Run, runner!
