HOLLYDALE aka Small Town America.
Cloverdale’s small town charm makes it a popular shooting location for a number of movies and TV shows. Many fans from the TV show Smallville continue to make the trek to the original set to pay homage to one of their favorite shows and inevitably all will pose in front of the local movie theatre wearing some form of super wear.
In 2016, the City of Surrey reported that filming in the first half of the year is 250% bigger than all of 2015 and that the Cloverdale Town Centre was a big part of the growth with over 7 productions in 7 months. On July 20th the Cloverdale BIA/Chamber office was converted into a Quick Car Rental office in Nebraska for the TV series Rogue. The historic downtown of Cloverdale remains “A Good Place to Shoot Movies” and in 2016 was home to a number of movie and TV shows like Frequency (TV series – Pilot), Prison Break (TV series), the Impastor (TV series), A Wish for Christmas (MOW), The Christmas Makeover (MOW), Rufus 2 (MOW) and Rogue – (TV Series). In the middle of August, Cloverdale will be a location for an even bigger feature movie comedy called “Why We Are Killing Gunther” – starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Cobie Smulders, Taran Killam (actor/director/producer/writer), Bobby Moynihan and Kumail Nanjiani.
The Filming industry works closely with the business community to ensure that disruptions are kept to a minimum and that whenever you shop or visit downtown Cloverdale you might witness some “Movie Magic”.
