Cherry 2000 Locations
Under their watchful eye, the following special places were used for filming "Cherry 2000":
Two hours west from Vegas is Beatty, Nevada. A few miles beyond are Beatty Dunes, west of US 95 and accessible by graded dirt road. This romantic feature was the setting for much of the movie Cherry 2000.
Nearby, the ruins of the ghost town Rhyolite, a gold rush city was used as the "fringe" of humanity as our heroes head in to Lester's zone.
Lester's Sky Ranch is one hour north on Vegas in Valley of Fire State Park.
The creepy hotel in the movie is the "Goldfield Hotel" in another ghost town, Goldfield, Nevada, an hour or so north of Beatty. This was once the grandest hotel in Nevada. It is rumored the film crew for Cherry 2000 refused to take up lodging at night in the Goldfield Hotel during the filming in fear of the spirits. Even in the daytime film equipment unexpectectly failed and noises were heard that scared the crap out of the extras. The Eye seen on the wall in the movie was, until recently, still visible on a nearby building. It was removed a couple of years ago. [Thanks to Bill for the eye update]
The Hoover dam was, of course, also used for the scenes with the water tunnels.
