Hollywood in the ‘Mont

IMG_1357With Claremont’s close proximity to Hollywood, locals occasionally see  trucks roll into town for a shoot. We rarely see the stars of the shows, but it’s a fun buzz to find out what’s happening.

Last week Fox TV used the basement of the UCC and Bardot Restaurant for a pilot featuring Mandy Moore, who, I’m pretty sure, was not in our fair city for these scenes.

This link lists a number of movies and tv shows that have been filmed in the ‘Mont – from The Absent-Minded Professor to Teen Wolf Too, although I don’t think the list is complete. I seem to recall an episode of Quantum Leap that turned some buildings into the South with hanging moss everywhere, and I’m also sure that Buster Keaton was here in a film.


One thought on “Hollywood in the ‘Mont

  1. In addition to seeing all of the trucks here for that recent shoot in the Refectory, I remember when they filmed “My Girl 2” in front of Powell’s Hardware in 1994. It’s also really interesting to see the list of how many scenes have been filmed in various building on the various Claremont Colleges Campuses.
