Sophia Coppola’s slow-paced, 2010 film “Somewhere” takes place almost entirely at Hollywood’s famed Chateau Marmont. The hotel has been a beacon for celebrities over the years, at times hosting everyone from Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski, to Jim Morrison, to Hunter S. Thompson, to Keanu Reeves. Comedian John Belushi passed away at the hotel in 1982. The hotel is known for it’s privacy and discretion. It made for a perfect location for Coppola’s story about an aimless actor reexamining his life.
