With 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.
