Though a GPS wasn't used, the Shawshank Redemption had a geocache.

It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World did also.

 

There have been so many...

 

Methinks the "cache" in those two movies was something other than a gerocache.

 

It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World is from 1963

and

The Shawshank Redemption is from 1994

 

Geocaching is from 2000

Treasure is not only the best geocaching movie ever made by a landslide, it is a great movie with a great cast, superb acting, and a touching story.  We showed the movie at the Texas Challenge and there were some in tears at the most touching portion of the movie.  It has a bunch of Easter Eggs that are fun to spot.  The movie also does justice to the sport of Geocaching.  Buy two copies...one for you and one to put in a cache somewhere...

So if anyone is not familiar with Mystery Science Theater 3000 or Rifftrax, it's basically funny commentary recorded over bad movies.  In one particular movie ('Grizzly') on Rifftrax, a character named Scott gets mauled and killed by a bear.  Two park rangers find his body and wonder how to get his body out of the forest.  One says they should bury the body and send the coordinates for it to be picked up later...at which point Mike Nelson says "Okay but bright side...Scott is now an amazing geocaching destination"

Okay now that is a spectacular tagline!  :laughing::laughing::laughing:

Could make a good trivia question... if that's the literal phrase, it doesn't look like it can even be googled :)

You can see the whole sequence starting around 1:23.  The line itself is just about at 1:24

Currently Zero.

That location is on private property. The closest cache is  GC48C6C located about 3/4 of a mile S.W. of the "stone wall in the shade of an Oak Tree."

The movie is free with ads for the time being.  Just look at the color and clarity of that film.

One new movies  Finding Ohana 2021

The Netflix movie "Finding 'Ohana" was one of the better depictions of Geocaching in pop culture. They have a multi cache published during an event (Greenpoint Geocachers) as a race to the finish. It is pretty cool. Then they kept up the theme of finding treasure throughout the movie. They find the treasure at "ground zero". The dialogue kept mentioning how the lead character Pili Kawena would rather be geocaching than sitting around the house - this is accurate for most of us.
In the credits they list Roland Lee as the geocache consultant. Based on https://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/story/17358698/geocaching-craze-in-hawaii/ I believe his geo handle is GeoGerms. He is the #5 ranked top finder of Hawaii caches at a whopping 3342 just in Hawaii.
