As a Marylander I have two words: Barry Levinson. He's got so many old classics filmed in the state! His movie Avalon was filmed in my neighborhood in Baltimore when I was growing up. A more travel-appropriate title is the Accidental Tourist with Kathleen Turner, also filmed in MD.

See this Baltimore Sun roundup of MD films:

And, as an aside, Maryland has two exceptional movie theaters. The Senator, a Baltimore classic, and the AFI in Silver Spring which has an incredible annual film fest.

Also look for a great show called Homicide: Life on the Street, that the producers of The Wire made in Baltimore in the mid-1990s.

What can I say, I'm a proud native!
