If you’re a movie buff, then you’ll probably know that the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, starring Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen, has been filming at the original garage where Jobs and Wozniak started Apple. And if you weren’t aware, then have we got some news for you! …The upcoming Steve Jobs biopic has been filming at the original garage where Jobs and Wozniak started Apple.
But it’s not the only film to feature a cameo from a garage. There have been a few notable examples, and since we’re pretty big on garages – what with owning 13,500 of them – we thought we’d share the best three garages in the movies. So, let’s start with…
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
For everyone who ever wanted to play truant from school, work, or even their sister’s wedding, Ferris Bueller is a hero. The wise-cracking, laid-back high school student decides to have the ultimate day off. And what better way to do that than in a 1961 Ferrari 250GT California, which he ‘borrows’ from his friend’s dad, who stores it in a neat glass garage suspended above woodland. That’s a decision he may regret…
In the 90’s everything was carried out with a self-knowing post-modernity. And man, was it tiring when done badly. Thankfully, post-modern slasher flick, Scream done it just right. One of the stand-out scenes put a seriously dark spin on garages with automatic doors though, as one poor victim was tormented by the series’ terrifying Ghostface Killer. She tries to escape through the cat-flap – which ends about as well as you’d expect in a movie named after a shriek of terror.
James Bond is a man who knows a thing or two, right? And when it comes to storing his vintage Aston Martin DB5, he chooses the only logical choice – a secure lock-up garage. Perfect, really, since not only does it provide protection against the elements, it’s also unknown by the baddies. Oh, and he also gets to take his boss, M, out for a spin. She’s a lucky devil!
