ATLwood: The trailer for 'Hotel Clermont' is here

After six years in limbo, the documentary is ready for the public

A documentary about the Clermont Hotel once thought to be a thing of the past has since resurfaced. When the Clermont Hotel closed back in 2009, some local filmmakers decided to document, "the residents – and the people trying to keep the hotel alive – during its final days." Fast forward six years, and with Clermont's future is still a hot local topic, making the timing of the film's reemergence even better. Be on the lookout for our upcoming feature on the filmmakers behind the flick, and in the meantime click here for more info.
