New Photos from the Movie set of "Tomorrowland"

Recommended Posts

Is that "RED ROUTE 25 Cents" sign actually attached to the top of the Escorter ?

I know it's a movie but they didn't do that at the Fair. Correct ?

You are correct.

The serpentine phone booth looks real. If it isn't, it's a darned nice prop!

It's a prop. They decided it was cheaper to build it than to haul the real one and restore it.

Between this and the Iron Man film some of my friends might start to understand what a magical event this was.

Where are the luninaires??? Why are the trees are so big???? Most were planted for the fair and should be a year old. It looks like a nice park but not the worlds fair I remember. I think I'll be watching the movie taking notes as to what is wrong with this picture and forget to follow the story.

The bus stop signs were the same shape as the directional signs. http://64nywf65.20m.com/BusStop.jpg only smaller.

The set designers perused much of my online collection and requested better photos of some items. They did their best with detail considering the huge undertaking. Us fair nerds will notice these things but we shall allow some artistic license!

That's interesting. They weathered the sign. The orange and blue would have been more vibrant in 1964.

It's like when they show a western boomtown on TV or in the movies. The lumber is usually weathered to look old - when a boomtown contemporary "western" town would have bright, freshly sawn boards.

On a lot of westerns these days, they digitally turn off half the color--- again to make it look weathered or just 'old'. Like Doug said, there's no way it would have looked that way 'back then'.

Some more Movie Set Photos I found online today.

Thanks Max for the kind words, I heard they are using your Escorter for all the main shots on the Movie as it was probably the most accurate and probably runs better than mine, lol . I still need to find a new Onan Carb or rebuild mine.

They did a nice job on the Small World booths and signage. I loved seeing the luminaire - I wonder where it will end up. It looks lighter than the real ones so a lot easier to manage. I wonder how many they made.

Thanks, Mike.
