Fuel in the Tank

At first it was a Gilmore Gas Station and then it became a Texaco Station. Now it's a Starbucks. Outside seating only, however.

Quentin Tarantino's HATEFUL 8

Here are a few pix from outside the location of Tarantino's next 

When I asked why the ice making equipment, I was told that the director (Tarantino) wanted the actors breath to be visible. The interior of the soundstage is therefore, under 32 degrees (0 celsius).

Joel and Ethan Coen's HAIL CESAR

I caught the end of a location shoot today, while on my way to the market to buy the makings for Clam Chowder. 

These photos, taken along Santa Monica Blvd. in what is truly one of the seediest parts of Hollywood. The actual hotel is run down. The street is full of cheap goods sellers. It has been this way for over 40 years. 

As I came down Virginia Avenue, I saw this:

These beautiful old vehicles are for a feature film: Hail Cesar

Sleazy bar in real life called Gold Diggers Entertainment

"Hotel" is stretching it.

This is a close to down scale as it can get in Los Angeles.
