OVER THE YEARS, Charlotte’s been used as a backdrop for several major films and TV shows. If you’re a subscriber who wants to see your city’s cameos, here are the ones streaming right now on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and HBO Go:


AMAZON PRIME

Logan Lucky
This heist film uses the Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway as its backdrop. And the filmmakers used the real thing to pull it off.

Captive
The film, following escaped convict that takes a woman hostage, was filmed in the Charlotte area. It stars Kate Mara and David Oyelowo.

Dirty Dancing
Lake Lure was used to depict the setting for the 1987 original film. Thirty years later, the site hosts an annual festival to celebrate the film.

Days of Thunder
Shot in 1990, this film used the Charlotte Motor Speedway for several scenes. Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports, even served as a technical consultant for the film.

Banshee
The Cinemax show Banshee used Charlotte to represent an Amish community in Pennsylvania. Also like for spots in Mooresville and Waxhaw on the show.


NETFLIX

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
The Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly comedy was also shot partially at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Also, the titular racer’s homestead used an actual Lake Norman house.

10 Rules for Sleeping Around
This romantic comedy's main plot is probably obvious from the title, and various spots across the city were used for the 2013 film.


HBO GO

Nell
Jodie Foster and Liam Neeson star in this 1994 drama, following a woman that enters the world after being raised in isolation. Foster was nominated for both an Oscar and an Academy Award for the film.
