One of the perks about living in Los Angeles is that everywhere you turn is the filming site from some iconic movie or another. There's an app that rounds up snapshots of these filming locations when the movies were shot, and compares those to photos of what those places look like now.

We've written about the ScenePast: Movie & TV Location Time Travel app before, but we have a new set of images featuring films like It's a Wonderful Life and Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. You'll see filming locations from Pasadena to Santa Monica, with scenes going as far back as 1946.

It used to cost money to buy the app, but now that the folks behind ScenePast are offering it for free. It's available for download on iPhones here.
