Tomorrowland’s main unit has left Vancouver for the north Okanagan, scheduled to start filming on an Enderby farm today. So it was a surprise to see the movie’s 1964 Greyhound $3.00 Grand Sightseeing Tour bus at David Lam Park this morning. A small camera crew climbed on board with some background performers to film scenes out the window at the greenery in the park. And then the bus drove off.
Tomorrowland’s biggest shoot so far used this Greyhound bus on August 8th as a prop to film scenes of 11-year-old Frank Walker (boy version of George Clooney’s middle-aged inventor character) disembarking and staring in wonder at the spectacle of the University of British Columbia (UBC)’s Main Mall dressed as the 1964 New York World’s Fair.
