Mia says that she saw it in a library with her aunt.
Broadway Melody of 1940 (1940)
Mia and Sebastian's waltz in front of a black-and-white, starry background during the epilogue calls to mind Johnny and Clare's dance to "Begin the Beguine".
Casablanca (1942)
Mia points out a window on the Warner Brothers lot that Rick and Ilsa looked out of in "Casablanca". Mia also says that she saw it in a library with her aunt. Mia's room has one wall fully covered with a photo of Ingrid Bergman. Both lead male characters own a bar named after them: Rick's and Seb's. Both lead female characters visit those bars with a new husband and have a song played on the piano that refers to their previous relationship with Rick/Seb.
Notorious (1946)
Mia says that she saw it in a library with her aunt.
The Killers (1946)
Movie poster on wall.
An American in Paris (1951)
The ending, in which an alternate version of the film is carried out through various mediums of set and dance, is most likely a reference to 'Gene Kelly's famous twenty minute finale in which the same event occurs.
Singin' in the Rain (1952)
Sebastian spins around a lamppost like Don, and the staging of the epilogue. The epilogue features a scene in Paris where Sebastion plays piano in a red café. The café is a visual reference to the one seen during the "Broadway Melody" number in "Singin' in the Rain".
The Band Wagon (1953)
Mia and Sebastian's dance during "A Lovely Night" is modeled after the "Dancing in the Dark" scene.
Rebel Without a Cause (1955)
Mia says she feels like it after getting a callback. Sebastian quotes a line from it. They make a date to go see it together. Title is on the marquee and a movie poster is on display at the Rialto Theatre. One of the most iconic things from "Rebel" is 'James Dean's red jacket, Emma wears a similar jacket to both the audition and the call back.
The Red Balloon (1956) (Short)
In the final dream sequence, there is a statue of a small boy with a red balloon next to the river.
The Girl Can't Help It (1956)
The opening logos that turn from black and white Academy ratio (1.37:1) to color Cinemascope (2.55:1) is taken from a moment at the beginning of this film, where someone snaps their fingers to make the aspect ratio and color change.
Funny Face (1957)
In the epilogue, while Mia is filming her starring role, she holds a large bunch of balloons under the Arc de Triomphe while wearing a trenchcoat.
Vertigo (1958)
A scene in MIa's apartment is bathed in green light, and she wears a purple dress. The director states both are quoting this film.
Sleeping Beauty (1959)
Mia and Sebastian dance in the sky just like Aurora and Phillip.
Jules and Jim (1962)
For her audition, Mia tells a story of a woman with a carefree spirit who jumps into the Seine as Catherine does
Cleopatra (1963)
A painting of Mark Antony and Cleopatra from this version is seen.
Lilies of the Field (1963)
Poster on wall in Mia's bedroom.
The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964)
While Mia is writing her one woman play, the protagonist's name, Genevieve, is seen in the script. When Mia gives Sebastian a tour of the Warners back lot and points out the window "Casablanca", the storefront underneath is a recreation of the umbrella store from "Cherbourg". In the epilogue sequence, they dance by a gas station set. The building is white with red stripes. This is a reference to the Esso station at the end of Cherbourg.
The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967)
The opening number, and a lot of music composed for the film, are influenced by Jacques Demy and Michel Legrand's creations here.
Sweet Charity (1969)
The "Someone in the Crowd" number mirrors the all-female number "There's Gotta Be Something Better Than This". In the same scene, Mia's girlfriends sashay and whip their dresses around similar to Charity, Nickie, and Helene.
Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)
At the beginning of the 80's pool party scene, a woman in a red bikini exits the pools and appears to grasp the front closure of her top, reminiscent of Linda in "Fast Times".
Dangerous Minds (1995)
Mia auditions for a TV series that was described to her as "Dangerous Minds" meets "The O.C.".
That Thing You Do! (1996)
At the end of the movie, Mia's husband, played by Tom Everett Scott pulls her into Sebastian's jazz bar, which Sebastian wanted to own so he could play authentic jazz. This is an homage to "That Thing You Do!", in which Tom Everett Scott's character, Guy, loves jazz and asks his cab driver to take him to a bar with "good jazz".
Boogie Nights (1997)
At the first pool party scene, the camera dives into the water along with its guests, capturing bodies floating and swimming in a dreamlike manner.
Shakespeare in Love (1998)
Mentioned by the car radio announcer.
Punch-Drunk Love (2002)
The shot where Sebastian and Mia walk up to each other and kiss in the shadows while people are walking by.
The O.C. (2003) (TV Series)
Mia auditions for a TV series that was described to her as "Dangerous Minds" meets "The O.C.".
Spider-Man 2 (2004)
Sebastian walks by a poster of Mia as a movie star, the same way Peter does of Mary Jane. Ironically, Emma Stone has played another girlfriend of Peter Parker in other movies.
Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench (2009)
When Mia gives Sebastian a tour of the Warners back lot, they walk in front of someone rolling a lavish billboard for this movie, Chazelle's first film as a director (and a musical as well).
Midnight in Paris (2011)
In the epilogue sequence, when Sebastian and Mia are walking through Paris, the camera focuses on the clock which shows the time as 12:00.
Whiplash (2014)
Both films are about the struggle of being an artist and reconciling your dreams with the need to be human. Some more subtle moments are redone as well. The climax of both movies are remarkably similar. In the way that the movie ends with the close up frames of leads J.K. Simmons and Miles Teller and here it ends with the closeup frames of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. And in both the movie ends with the lead starting to play a song.
