Personally, I would vote for a Capitol Caper movie that is all about Washington, D.C. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), The Exorcist (1973), All the President's Men (1976), Being There (1979) and The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) among others come to mind. More than a few of these movies have a token scene set in Washington D.C. and are known as being set in other locales Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) @ Devils Tower (Wyoming) /Indiana or are a NYC movie.The French Connection (1971) or Three Days of the Condor (1975). I think the poll suggestion needs to scream Washington D.C., as there are plenty of good movies to do that. If necessary lower the rating requirement to get 6.8 rated movies like The American President (1995) or Dave (1993) if you need to fill out the list, I would love to see  6.1 rated Dick (1999) on the list as it would make my top ten..

Ed Jones (XLIX) spam filter also caught that "If you bomb..."  comment. I guess it's too threat-sensitive...

I doubt fans of the Washington Redskins or Baltimore Ravens consider themselves from the same place and residents would scoff at the notion the cities are basically one or a rebuttal of same difference.

'Another good poll, Ed! Good title, too. There are some very good films on the list and my favorite is 'All the President's Men;' I love that movie. 

May I suggest one tiny edit to the intro? (a comma after "place")
