We all love a good old movie binging sesh. And while Netflix has plenty of options, why not check out movies set right here in Washington? It turns out there’s quite a few and IMDb has them ranked just for you. So without further ado, here are the top 10 most popular and highest ranked movies set in Washington state, according to IMDb.

Now before we get into the top 10, we will say we omitted a few because it wasn’t clear if the film was actually set in Washington. The reason why we went ahead and did this is because the base list was compiled by an individual and not the website itself. Not only that but we want an accurate list for you all. Let’s get into it.

While brand new Malignant may top the list (for now) we can’t help but think of classics like 10 Things I Hate About You, Sleepless in Seattle and Say Anything as the most popular flicks. Of course we also can’t ignore or forget about David Lynch’s Twin Peaks and Fire Walk With Me. But times are changing and soon enough there will be a whole host of new “classic” PNW movies.

If you want to take a look through the original list, there’s 72 included titles. But you may want to do your own research as Washington doesn’t seem to be the setting for all of them. With that enjoy, and happy movie watching!
