If you are safely ensconced in your Asheville cabin and would prefer a screen tour of the Biltmore Estates why not rent or buy the fabulous movie starring Peter Sellers and Shirley MacLaine, Being There. Filmed at the Biltmore and first released in movie theaters in 1979, it has come out in a deluxe edition DVD and in blue ray for the first time this month. Sellers' character, a gardener/avid television watcher, is mistaken for a deep thinking, well-educated man in this timeless satiric movie. Each is available at amazon.com for $14.99 and $19.99 respectively.
If you enjoy viewing movies and then the locale itself then don't forget to order Dirty Dancing while you are at Amazon. This movie, filmed at nearby Lake Lure, features Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. A DVD 20th anniversary addition, released in 2007, is available for only $4.99.
