"Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!"

The Warner Grand in San Pedro stands in for the local theatre in Fraziers Bottom, West Virginia in "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!" (Dreamworks, 2004). Robert Luketic's film features Kate Bosworth as Rosalee Futch, a small town clerk who wins a date with film star Tad Hamilton (Josh Duhamel). Also featured are Topher Grace as a spurned boyfriend and Nathan Lane and Sean Hayes as Tad's agent and manager -- both named Richard Levy.

The theatre shows up in the film three times. Here at the beginning of the film Rosalee and her friends are watching Tad Hamilton's latest film. For the film we've added a simulation of a main floor projection booth. Thanks to Lindsay for the screenshot. It's on the Warner Grand page of her blog I Am Not a Stalker

In the middle of the film Rosalee and Tad Head to the theatre for their second date. Thanks to Chas Demster for this screenshot he includes in the post about the film's shooting locations on his blog Filming Locations of Chicago and New York

In the middle of the film Tad and Rosalee go to the Warner for their second date. This lobby shot features a cutout of Tad. The screenshot is from Lindsay's Warner Grand page, where you'll find more views of the Warner as seen in the film. Thanks, Lindsay!

Lindsay tells us the third time for the theatre isn't actually in the film. It's in an alternate ending that appears on the DVD. Rosalee goes with her father and several others to the theatre to see Tad's latest, "A Good Man Is Hard To Find," all about his relationship with Rosalee.

See the pages about the Warner Grand on the Los Angeles theatres site for many photos of all areas of this 1931 vintage art deco gem.
