On May 24th 1991, one of the most iconic movies to be filmed in Utah, opened - Thelma & Louise.
Now, thirty years later, the cult classic still inspires us to travel out West!
Although the movie is set in Arkansas, and the road trip is a fictional route to the Grand Canyon, the movie was predominantly filmed in Utah. All the place names you’ve heard before and possibly aspire to travel to: Moab, Arches, Monument Valley and Dead Horse Point State Park. In fact, the closing ‘Grand Canyon scene’ was filmed in the latter.
We don’t want to spoil the ending for anyone who hasn’t seen the movie - is there anyone out there who hasn’t? Whether it’s your first time or fifth time, pop some corn, grab a comfy seat and be entertained and mesmerised for 129 minutes. Along with the incredible backdrops, this film was Brad Pitt’s big break and both Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon were nominated for Best Actress Oscars.
Back to that scenery. It’s hard not to be inspired and tempted to plan your own road trip through Utah's truly astonishing terrain and National Parks.
