When is the last time you thought about where a movie took place? The rooms, cities, and architecture where movies are set are just as important as the script, actors, and special effects, yet we rarely give locations and sets their due. It's high time that conversation began to change. CINEOPOLIS is a podcast, hosted by film historian Christian Niedan and editor and culture journalist Dante A. Ciampaglia, about movies — and the places that made them. Through deep dives into movies and filmmakers and discussions with professionals, critics, and authors, CINEOPOLIS will change how you see movies...and the world around you.
