San Francisco to Germany via Indiana Jones

Stephen Murray from Swords Orthodontics visited more movie locations at AAO 2015 in San Francisco

Just a brief blog today on some more movie connections that I found while at the American Association of Orthodontists meeeting AAO 2015 in San Francisco. I took a bus tour from Union Square and there was a statue dedicated to Yoda with the message "Do or do not. There is no try".

On the tour we encountered part of the studio facilities of George Lucas, the guy who invented Star Wars, right in the middle of San Francisco, and on Treasure Island, one of the islands in San Francisco bay that doesn't have a famous prison on it, there is a US Navy facility that appeared in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade as an airship aerodrome. It surprised me how many places in San Francisco have appeared in famous movies, even ones that weren't actually set in San Francisco!
