The normally family friendly Pontins Resort in Camber Sands, Rye, England has been turned into a war zone this week by none other than George Clooney.
Clooney is currently directing and starring in The Monuments Men and he chose the resort for key scenes in the WWII drama. The movie is based on the book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History by Robert M. Edsel about a crew of art historians and museum curators who united to recover irreplaceable works of art stolen by the Nazis.

Ah, hotels. If you’re reading this, chances are that you’re already a believer in the power of hotels for good. In them, a conversation can be started between strangers from opposite ends of the world; an idea can be sparked over breakfast and a changing streetscape; a restless soul can be momentarily at peace during a detoxifying herbal wrap; and more visceral needs can be sated with a special someone in the privacy of a room of one’s own.
Happily, we’re not the only ones who think this way. The Vancouver Art Gallery has opened their Grand Hotel: Redesigning Modern Life exhibition and you have until September 15 to check it out. It explores the hotel from the beginning –- when it was simply a utilitarian place to rest your head –- to what it is today: a center of design, a social hub and, sometimes, a destination unto itself.
The Grand Hotel exhibit is broken down into four themes: Travel, Social, Design, and Culture. Here’s our take on what these themes mean. It’s a bit esoteric but that’s art, right? (If you’d like to see how these themes play out in real life, check out our sister site HotelChatter.)

Just last week the cast and crew of Anchorman 2 turned downtown Atlanta in NYC, circa 1977, but this weekend they'll be taking over the real thing.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues will help New York City stay classy tomorrow, Saturday, May 17, as they film scenes throughout Manhattan. Anchorman 2, or Teaching Manheim (the movie's code name) is scheduled to bring a little bit of 70s style to the area around the Flatiron Building and Madison Square Park, before shooting scenes at Rockefeller Center.
Downtown Atlanta could easily pass for Hollywood this week as a parade of stars has been making their way to Woodruff Park for Anchorman 2.
Sacha Baron Cohen, Liam Neeson, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Jim Carrey, Kanye West, Kirsten Dunst, John C. Reilly, and James Marsden have all been spotted filming cameos for the movie, along with the movie's original cast members - Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, and David Koechner - at the park.
The crazy popular young adult novel Divergent, about a teenage girl named Tris who lives in a dystopian Chicago, is headed to the big screen. And, even though filming has just begun, fans are already buzzing about which Chicago landmarks mentioned in the book will make it into the movie.
On top of the list of potential filming locations (and future, inevitable movie tour stops) is Millennium Park which “used to be a park” in the book, John Hancock Center, a now abandoned building Tris ziplines from, Navy Pier’s Ferris Wheel which Tris climbs at one point, and Michigan Avenue, where the production was already spotted setting up.
Spider-Man might be a fixture in New York City, the city Peter Parker calls home but, surprisingly, not one Spider-Man movie was entirely shot in New York...until now.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the first in the history of the franchise to be filmed entirely in New York City and New York State.
Filming officially began this week in Atlanta for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and it's only a matter of time before the movie's filming locations become the city's hottest tourist destinations.
The first Hunger Games movie was shot in North Carolina and launched a entire new tourism industry for the state, including survival trips and location tours.
If a massive flood happens to hit Long Island this fall, Darren Aronofsky has it covered.
The Black Swan director is currently working on Noah, starring Russell Crowe as the famous ark-builder of the Old Testament. Instead of recreating an Ark with CGI, Aronofsky has kept it real by building a life-size, 5-story tall Ark on the grounds of Planting Fields Arboretum in Upper Brookville, New York.

Forget San Diego, the ultimate comic geek destination this summer will be Wilmington, N.C.

On Monday, Ashley Greene was spotted on set of Pan Am at 1 Lexington Ave in New York City, along with co-star Michael Mosley.
The Twilight star sported a sleek ’60s up-do, long black coat and white gloves while sharing a kiss with Mosley for the scene. Ashley, who plays Mosley's love interest Amanda Mason, can next be seen on Pan Am this Sunday, Jan. 22.
Last night The Vampire Diaries returned to The CW after a brief winter hiatus, and tonight the cast is returning to Covington, GA, which has played Mystic Falls in the series since its first season.
The Vampire Diaries is expected to shoot scenes for an upcoming episode tonight from 4:30 p.m. clear to 4:30 a.m. along Clark Street, between Church and Monticello, on Hays Street from Clark Street to Usher Street, and on Hunter Street between Clark and Usher streets.
Even though ABC has grounded new episodes of Pan Am until January 8, 2012, the show's stars are still busy shooting fresh scenes in New York City.
On Wednesday, December 7, Christina Ricci was spotted filming in a little black retro dress on the Upper East Side. Ricci, who plays Pan Am flight attendant Maggie Ryan in the series, also did some multitasking as she walked, smoked, and enjoyed a diet coke on the way to her trailer to change.
