Why is it always raining in movies?

Have you ever noticed that, in all movies, at some point or another, it rains? Even if there is no reason. I guess it's an artistic choice, because it looks photogenic to have rain effects, and splashes, and so on... but at some point this is annoying to have always this, and all the creativity of it is vanished. Too much effects, kills effects.

probably because that if they were filmed anywhere in the UK, then we know why, because its always raining here in the UK.

I have not seen all movies, but not in all movies I've seen, has it rained. I'd re-watch all of the movies I have seen if I were in doubt. So, no, I can't say I've noticed that.

Gene Kelly was not singing in the rain, that was studio special effects.

I have noticed many times the sun is shining at the same time, even producing strong shadows. That probably indicates fake rain
made by the movie crew. Other times, when it's supposed to be at sundown or just after, you know it's broad daylight with the camera adjusted to allow much less light to pass into the lens.

In every movie the streets are always wet at night. I swear there is not one where the streets are not wet. Why?

I have noticed that too. Perhaps they movie people do that because it helps with picture quality or light effect? Or I've wondered if they spray down the streets that are going to be filmed on to reduce dust and debris from interfering with the shot

Simulating weather conditions, is among the first special effects of the cinema. It's still used for all kind of purpose. To add to the drama of the situation, to share a feeling, etc…Also, it contributes to make the image richer, and more complex. It can also be used to mask elements of the set, etc…

But like all SFX, at some point, directors are becoming abusive of it 🙂

By the way, the rain in the movies adds to the drama of the situation, exteriorizing the feeling of the characters. This is also one of the first common effects which were reproducible in the early age of cinema. Same way as over exposure, rain can also add a touch of sophistication to the picture.
