Up’s Oscar Noms Will Mean More Business for the Movie’s Real-Life Ice-Cream Stop

After Up received its Oscar nomination for Best Picture (the first animated film since 1991’s Beauty and the Beast to get one), the Pixar crew likely treated themselves to a sundae at their local Oakland soda fountain, Fentons. Not only because Hey, who doesn’t love ice cream?, but also because Fentons has an important cameo in the film: An animated version of it serves as the final scene’s location, as Carl, Russell the Boy Scout, and Dug the dog happily sit outside on the curb with their cones. And the Fentons scoopers will be happy the Pixarians have a reason to celebrate, because every time Up gets attention, more fans show up to eat.
