Notice the Peter Frampton LP--unfortunately not I'm In You--with copies of Sheik Yerbouti both above it and to the left.

In 'Things We Lost In the Fire', Benicio Del Toro's character has a Walkman and he listens to 'Little House I Used to Live In' (Filmore East live version) and 'Black Napkins'.

(I think there was a thread in here about this some time back)

Mystery Science Theater 3000 has many Zappa references in their episodes. Here's a listing.

I remember watching The Ice Storm by Ang Lee, and there was a scene where they put Overnite Sensation on the turntable. Wikipedia says it's set during Thanksgiving 1973, so the LP would have been new at the time of the story. The film's from 1997.

In that shot from Scanners you can also see a poster for Alan Parsons Project's Eve, which was heavily marketed around the period when SY was released.

Oh, I must not forget Happy Together by Wong Kar- Wai, which in addition to the Turtles tune and a lot of tango used I Have Been In You and the opening riff of Chunga's Revenge very effectively, for the sordid tale of a homosexual Hong Kong couple who lost their way and sense of direction on a trip to Argentina.
