** Dublin, which has neither skyscrapers nor (surviving) Tudor buildings, has pretended to be New York for the recent film version of ''The Honeymooners'' and 16th century England for numerous episodes of ''TheTudors''. In films Dublin has also doubled for Liverpool (''Educating Rita'' and ''An Awfully Big Adventure''), London (''Peaches'') and Boston (''Far and Away'').

* As alluded to in the opening, it's pretty rare for ''Star Trek'' to shoot outside of California, or at least it was prior to [[Film/StarTrek the 2009 reboot]]. From the [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries original series]] through ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'', the ''Trek'' TV shows were filmed entirely in California. Much like Vasquez Rocks, Griffith Park has been used many times as many planets over the years. The pre-reboot ''Trek'' films sometimes ventured outside of California, but never outside the United States. The first ''Trek'' scenes shot outside of California were some shots of Yellowstone, doubling for Vulcan, in ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture''. With the reboot films, on-location filming has become more commonplace. ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'' has the first ''Trek'' scenes shot outside of America, albeit by a second unit in Iceland for the backdrop for the "surgery on a torpedo" sequence. It went a step further with the next film, ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'', which was filmed primarily in {{UsefulNotes/Vancouver}}, with {{UsefulNotes/Seoul}} and {{UsefulNotes/Dubai}} as additional locations. The sixth ''Trek'' TV series, ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery'', will also be filmed primarily in Canada, specifically {{UsefulNotes/Toronto}}.

* As alluded to in the opening, it's pretty rare for ''Star Trek'' to shoot outside of California. All the TV shows have been filmed entirely in California and no ''Trek'' production (except ''Into Darkness'') has filmed outside the United States. Much like Vasquez Rocks, Griffith Park has been used many times as many planets over the years. Only six of the twelve films have filmed any scenes outside California. These are the only exceptions to California doubling in the entire series:
** ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'': Part of the Vulcan sequence was filmed at Yellowstone
** ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'': A second unit filmed long distance shots in Alaska with doubles for Creator/WilliamShatner, Creator/DeForestKelley, and Iman.
** ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'': Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada was the surface Veridian III.
** ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'': The missile silo was filmed at the Titan Missile Museum in Arizona.
** ''Film/StarTrek'': The scene where young Kirk drives his stepfather's car into a quarry was filmed in Vermont.
** ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'' has the first scenes shot out of America, as the second unit filmed in Iceland the backdrop for the "surgery on a torpedo" sequence.

* ''ThePinkPanther'' and its series avert this most of the time (i.e., filming on location), but ''A Shot in the Dark'' was specifically filmed in Borehamwood at MGM's British Studios. The biggest evidence of this is a scene where Inspector Clouseau runs through a room, out the window and into the Seine -- which was just a large tank filled with thousands of gallons of water.

Another time that this may be necessary is if the original location (and this is true especially for period pieces) no longer looks like what it did in story. While obviously it might be a bit difficult filming an ancient Rome in Rome itself, as the city resembles Caesar's city in name only, even more recent cases might need new areas--the London of today is quite different from the London of Victorian times and the early part of the twentieth century (thanks [[TheBlitz in no small part]] to the ''[[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons Luftwaffe]]''), so many East European locations are substituted instead.
