* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' uses quite a few of these, most notably during the shots of the apartment building, which change depending on how bad things are (the last shot of it has ''pure black smoke'' shooting out of the top).

* The film version of ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' uses this for the Briny Beach and the railroad scenes. It's a lot more elaborate though, as only the sky was matted; everything else was real, but scaled to give the illusion of distance (e.g. the crops in the field were actually made smaller and smaller as they approached the matte backdrop).

* ''TheDarkCrystal'' used several of these shots.
* There are over one hundred matte paintings in ''GoneWithTheWind''. The exterior of Tara was only built partially, with matte painting filling in the rest for distant shots. As was the custom at the time, none of the sets had ceilings so that studio lights and sound recording equipment could go there. In some shots, ceilings were added using matte paintings.

* Used often in ''Radio/OurMissBrooks''. A good example is the final scene of "The Big Jump", where the action takes place on the Madison High rooftop with a matte background in behind.

* The cast of ''MysteryScienceTheater3000'' enjoy pointing out unconvincing matte shots in the various movies they watched. For example, in ''Film/GameraVsGuiron'', a spaceship is represented by a painting as the protagonists stand outside, then the camera cuts to a different angle before the characters actually interact with the spaceship. Joel and the bots comment, "Always remember to wait for the cut, otherwise you'll walk right into the matte paining."

** Matte paintings were used to simulate long corridors in both "The Daleks" and the first part of "The Keys of Marinus". The former did not look particularly amazing because the angle did not join up and, with the way it was lit, the actors's shadows were cast against it. "The Keys of Marinus" also used mattes for the alien beaches and sea.
