The Cinema Isle: A UK Movie Map

Inspired by the Guardian online map of the US in movies I thought it would be fun to attempt a version for the UK.

It was an interesting exercise as some regions proved quite tricky to represent whilst others were spoiled for choice - predictably London is so overpopulated, it could likely warrant a map in itself.  I also had to take a couple of minor geographical liberties, so please accept my apologies if you happen to live somewhere I've misrepresented - I don't think I have much of a future in cartography.  Click here to download a high-res version.
