The 1980 movie Somewhere in Time was mostly filmed on Mackinac Island, Michigan, with much of the film centered around the Grand Hotel, and other scenes filmed at the sound stage of The Mission Point Film Studio and Fine Arts Building (now Mission Point Resort). Some scenes were also filmed in Chicago, Illinois.
Directed by Jeannot Szwarc, Somewhere in Time was a film adaptation by Richard Matheson of his 1975 novel Bid Time Return, although the setting for the novel is the Hotel del Coronado near San Diego rather than the Crown Hotel on Mackinac.
The film starred Christopher Reeve, Jane Seymour, and Christopher Plummer, and during filming, the cast and crew were based at The Inn on Mackinac. Cars had to be brought in especially for the movie as the island is substantially free of motor vehicles.
