* Just about every movie with a scene inside {{CIA}} headquarters involves a shot of a character walking over the seal near the main entrance at Langley, including ''Film/PatriotGames'' and ''Film/MissionImpossible''. The same pattern is used for parodies of the CIA, like Omega Sector in ''Film/TrueLies'' or even the LAPD lavishly overdone with water fountains in ''Film/LastActionHero''. Also Taggart Transcontinental in ''Film/AtlasShrugged'', itself a kind of Randian private enterprise version of central intelligence. Okay not really, but it follows the same pattern establishment shot.

Establishing shots have fallen out of favor somewhat since the 90s. Current movies and TV dramas (''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]'', ''Series/{{Lost}}'', ''Series/{{Heroes}}'', to name a few) go right into the action of the scene. Captions or title cards may be used instead to establish location or time setting. The ''Franchise/LawAndOrder'' franchise uses distinctive title cards to establish time and place.

* Most ''Series/ModernFamily'' episodes begin with an exterior shot of the Dunphey or Pritchet house, depending on which one the following scene takes place in. It's worth noting that the dialog often begins with the establishing shot instead of the scene itself.

* ''Series/{{The 100}}'' uses a fair number of establishing shots, particularly of TheArk space station. Most notably, the opening credits play out over various locations on Earth as seen from above, with the last location shown [[CouchGag changing each episode]] so that it also serves as an EstablishingShot for the first scene shown after the credits.
