This past weekend HBO movie “Game Change” premiered. We’ll leave the review to our favorite TV critic, The Baltimore Sun‘s David Zurawik, but whether you liked the film or not (I did), there is a little thrill for Baltimoreans of every political stripe when scenes of the region appear on screen. Early in the movie, Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin takes the initial call from John McCain while she’s at a state fair with her kids. That’s really Six Flags. At the end of the movie, when the McCain operatives are having a drink? That’s the Explorer’s Lounge at the Harbor Court Hotel. The rope line Sarah Palin walks? It’s Goucher College. Look also for The Valley Inn, the Tremont Hotel, and an unmistakable view of the Walgreen’s at the southwest corner of St. Paul’s and Fayette. Let us know if you saw something we missed. The film shows again on HBO Monday night at 9 p.m.
