Filming


Cheakamus Centre has been a much sought after filming and photography location for over 40 years. We continue to uphold our "film-friendly" reputation as an easy and straight forward location for the film and TV industry. Located on 420 acres of diverse natural landscapes, this ecological reserve offers forested trails, river frontage, spawning channels and creeks, making it a popular and recurring shooting location.

Our history as a western style resort coupled with our newly built LEED Platinum BlueShore Financial Environmental Learning Centre means we can offer a wide variety of unique buildings. Our rustic cabins, log houses, animal farm and dance hall lend themselves to a diversified audience, while our state of the art Environmental Learning Centre is an open palette for creating a wide variety of filming scenes. For an authentic First Nations filming location, our Coast Salish Bighouse is unique to the area.

Cheakamus Centre can accommodate most sets and crew sizes. Our experienced staff will work in close collaboration with location scouts and production crews to ensure filming time is optimized. Spacious and secure parking for crews, equipment trucks and production vehicles is also available for filming taking place in other areas in the Sea to Sky corridor.
