Douglas McGrath’s Infamous was one of many movies shot in Texas’ capital city of Austin.

“Austin is just simply not like the rest of Texas,” boasts the Website for Austin’s visitor’s bureau. As the capital of the second largest state in the nation, Austin is proud of its artistic reputation—and so it has inevitably played a role in many of the best films to come out of Texas in the last 50 years. Both Robert Rodriguez and Richard Linklater have based numerous projects here, including From Dusk Till Dawn, Sin City, SubUrbia and A Scanner Darkly. Linklater even serves as the artistic director of the Austin Film Society and both moviemakers are involved with the organization’s offshoot, Austin Studios. Several upcoming movies will feature Austin and its surrounding areas, including the new Truman Capote film Infamous, Linklater’s Fast Food Nation and Mike Judge’s Idiocracy.Other films that pay homage to “The Live Music Capital of the World:”
