Famous movie places in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is known for its bright lights and casinos. All the places look fabulous and have something special in every detail of them. Due to Las Vegas glamour, film producers usually select the city to shoot their movies.

More than hundreds of films were shot in Sin City. There have been shots filmed outside and inside casinos, strip clubs, luxurious hotels and many more you cannot even count it! Some places are already gone and live only in the movie screen but there are still a lot of locations where you can walk around and recognize particular movie scenes being shot there. We review a few places in Las Vegas where popular movies were shot.


The Bellagio

One of the best luxurious hotels in Las Vegas had a pretty big role in the film ‘Ocean’s 11’, and the movie’s sequels. The major scenes were filmed in 2001 and have been noticed by the fans in real life. The producer of the film was friends with ‘The Bellagio’ owner and that was a big deal for the film as it let the filmmakers shoot the movie anywhere in the building. They had a full pass on every area of the place for 5 weeks.
Regarding the complete full pass, ‘Ocean’s 11’ was shot in many different locations such as botanical gardens, inside of a casino, restaurant, art galleries, main lobby with a ceiling made of glass. Thus, the most popular scene was filmed near the main entrance of the casino – the movie’s main characters gathered by the lake and watched fountains show which was choreographed to music.

Caesars Palace

We do not go far away from ‘The Bellagio’ because we could say ‘Caesars Palace’ is his neighbour, not even a mile away. The place has been opened since 1966 and it holds a design inspired by the Roman Empire. There is a statue built of Julius Caesar near the entrance. It is the first thing you see when you enter the palace. Despite Caesar’s statue, there are more statues, fountains and glorious mosaics in the whole place. The famous comedy movie ‘The Hangover’ was filmed in Las Vegas and in ‘Caesars Palace’.
The movie used multiple locations to shoot the scenes for example lobby, main entrance, Palace’s pool, and check-in desk. It might seem that the fancy room of their stay was filmed in the hotel as well but actually it was recreated and built in their film making studio. ‘Caesars Palace’ is a big favourite for filmmakers and popular for any genre. 


Graceland Wedding Chapel

If you want to visit ‘Graceland Wedding Chapel’ you have to take a taxi or a bus going from downtown as it is a bit far from the town centre. The wedding chapel has first been opened in the 1940s and it was the main spot for celebrities’ weddings. Elvis Presley visited the place after twenty years since it was opened and decided to let the chapel name itself the Graceland name. It is still opened, and you can get married by an Elvis Presley imitator!

There have been films shot such as ‘Fools Rush’ with Salma Hayek and Matthew Perry and ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. You can visit the place yourself and relive the same moments as movie stars did.
