    Monuments Men


    The George in Rye

    A HOLLYWOOD movie filmed in the Rye area goes on general release today.

    Last June, locals  enjoyed a treat when Hollywood A Listers George Clooney, Matt Damon, John Goodman and Bill Murray arrived in the area to shoot The Monuments Men.  

    Scenes were shot on the beach at Camber, at Strand Quay in Rye and at the New Inn in Winchelsea.

    Strand Quay was taken back in time to the 1940’s with period fishing luggers moored there.

    George Clooney, who starred in and directed the film, took time out to chat with fans and sign autographs during filming at Strand Quay and The George in Rye provided accommodation for the stars.
