8 Mile (2002)
    Kudos to Eminem for convincing Hollywood to film this thinly veiled quasi-autobiography about his rise in Detroit’s hip-hop scene in the place where it all went down. (“Filmed on location in the 313” as the ending credits proudly proclaim.) Not only does the movie feature a number of notable Motor City locations (peep the Michigan Building’s ruin porn parking garage and a glimpse inside the long-demolished Chin Tiki), but it also brought colorful local characters like Miz Korona, Proof, and Obie Trice to the big screen. Fun fact: The rap battle scenes at the Shelter were not shot at the real Shelter, but rather a re-created set elsewhere in Detroit.
