The campus and buildings of UCLA have been in 184 different films and television shows, and filming of music videos, television shows, and movies are constantly seen on campus and near our local town, Westwood.

I was eating brunch right next to the filming of Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, where the female cop on the horse rides around the UCLA campus. It was so interesting to see how many takes of a two second scene they had to film. I was also right next to the filming of an episode of Modern Family from the new season. They used my friend’s fraternity house as a location in a scene!
