Cincinnatians love seeing this city on-screen — in Rain Man, The Ides of March, Traffic, Bar Rescue,
etc. — and there’s no greater film that encapsulates the spirit of the
Queen City (plus the awesomeness of early ’90s Rollerblading and
turtlenecks) more than the seminal sporty romantic comedy Airborne.
have reportedly urged Cincinnati to emulate larger, “awesome” cities by
becoming more accommodating to skaters, bikers and users of other
self-propelled modes of transportation. Otherwise, visitors who have
seen the locally filmed 1993 rollerblading classic Airborne might
be disappointed to find out that Cincinnati isn’t really the kind of
place a cool kid from California would move and that Devil’s Backbone
might not be real, either.
