Location: Little A’LE’INN Rachel, NV Movie: Paul – 2011
It may not be the most famous film on our list, but Paul is definitely a cult cracker. This Sci-Fi comedy follows Nick Frost and Simon Pegg who play a couple of comic geeks on a UFO sight-seeing trip of the US Southwest. Along the way they meet the title character, an animated stoner alien called Paul (played by Seth Rogan).
Anyway, the ET Highway was a central part of the movie, along with the famous A’LE’INN diner, where they have an altercation with a couple of rednecks. Now obviously the diner is real (we’ve sat in it) and the owner (portrayed in the film by Jane Lynch) really is called Pat Stevens, but you’ll find the one in the movie is different. That’s because they recreated it and filmed it in Montana and just used the A’LE’INN name.
