Club Ed is one of several motel/gas station/diner film sets in the area. It was built from scratch for a Dennis Hopper film (Eye of the Storm) in 1990. Instead of striking the set after filming was completed, the set was bought and has been used as a desert location and production services center ever since. Because of Club Ed, 150th Street is said to be the most-filmed desert road, and appears in numerous television commercials.
