Los Angeles and Hong Kong easily beat it - JustAnAccount

Ocean's Eleven, Fear and Loathing, the Hangover, The Godfather, Rain Man, Vegas Vacation, Leaving Las Vegas, just to name a few...

As far as I know, the first Cardcaptor Sakura movie, the second half of Mobile Fighter G Gundam, a few episodes or so of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, the series finale of American Dragon Jake Long, and (I think) one episode of Digimon Xros Wars Season 3 all took place there.
Also, Master Asia from Mobile Fighter G Gundam, Shaoran Li from Cardcaptor Sakura, and Shana from Shakugan no Shana are known to have came from/grown up there as well. - PerfectImpulseX
Shyamalan movies and World War Z - JustAnAccount
