    Yeah I hear you man. I feel that way when I see photos of Philly...not that it's one of the most beautiful places on earth, but it's home.

    #2 is The Fury. I had that on my list to visit last time I was in Chicago, but I didn't make it. Got distracted by Child's Play and John Hughes filming locations.

    I'm on a mobile and it's too big of a pain to use Google Street view without a PC, but based on the common theme, year, and city, I can safely guess:

    1 Carrie
    3 Patrick
    5 Scanners
    6 Firestarter

    Correct on all five!

    That leaves # 4.

    100 Techwood Drive
    Atlanta, Georgia 30303

    The film was released in 1979.

    This location was the site of a major indoor, multipurpose sports arena from 1972 until 1999.

    No takers?

    #4 was The Visitor aka Stridulum.

    The stadium in question was The Omni in Atlanta, Georgia

    Telekinesis was the common theme featured in all six films.

    This might be a tough one, but I'm sure some of you have seen it recently:

    40 W Cambridge Ave

    We moved to Atlanta in the summer of 1980 and went ice skating at the Omni on several occasions. I also saw PiL open for INXS there. Damn, that was a long time ago...

    No, but good guess. It does look similar.

    The comment about some of you having seen it recently is actually a clue, as it was just released on blu-ray.
