The article analyses a few assumptions on ‘migratory cities’ proposed in science fiction and science fiction films, which explore the pattern of future urban development and the social development of human beings. The concept of a city on the move sounds interesting at first; however, it turns out that people are forced to migrate because of ecological damage and resource shortage. A point in the article that touches me significantly is that citizens in Terminator, a rolling city, enjoy a lifestyle similar to the present one. Hence to some extent, these works serve as a reminder for today’s people. Furthermore, they are not fanciful imaginations, but rooted in reality, full of concern for human beings and the current society.
