    It may be kind of hard to recognize this set, but it is actually where scenes from movies such as Dante's Peak and The Truman Show were filmed.  The blue backdrop is the largest free-standing flat (is that the word for it?).  The area right in front of it is usually filled with water, but due to the filming of another movie (the set of which is actually just to the right of where the picture ends) that large contrapment in front of the blue screen had to be set up.
    When the "lake" actually was filled with water, it was used in the acid lake scene of Dante's Peak and also the ocean in The Truman Show.  Looks a lot different from far away and without the water, huh!
