I'm working on this puzzle where the solution is either a word or phrase with no theme.
The first part of the puzzle had incorrect movie titles with cities, states, etc, and the solution to the first part of the puzzle is the actual places in the movie titles.
Below is the list of all the actual places.
Somehow, this list should yield a word, but I have no idea what to do to get this word. They are arranged in chronological order.
Sorted by release date:
Rome St. Louis

I tried a whole bunch of different counting patterns and also introduced some ciphers into the mix, but I still can't figure it out. Can anyone help me out in getting to the probable solution ?
