Couples Retreat

wait what?
My Vincey was in my city?

Just a week after the Arcadia Recreation and Community Services Dept. created a winter wonderland at the Community Center with 40 tons of snow, Hollywood came to Arcadia and went a couple steps further, turning the Community Center into a faux ice rink in a fictional Chicago suburb of Buffalo Grove, Ill., for a new movie called "Couples Retreat" starring Vince Vaughn, Kristin Davis, Jason Bateman, and Jon Favreau.
Vaughn and others spent most of Monday, Dec. 22, filming at the Community Center and later across the street at Santa Anita Park. Filmmakers converted the Top of the Stretch on the west end of the Santa Anita grandstands into a Chicago hotel room where Vaughn had a scene with one of the actresses.

here's a link to a super cheesy community bulletin-type video showing Arcadia turning into snowy Chicago.
