The following is a list of films shot, at least in part, in Riverside, California.

The films shot at the Riverside International Raceway and at March Air Force Base are outside the Riverside city limits, but they have been included because both locations are closely associated with the city of Riverside. The Riverside International Raceway no longer exists, and March Air Force Base has been renamed the March Joint Air Reserve Base, now more closely associated with Moreno Valley, California.
