Ahh ... Got it :-)

The arena formerly known as Northlands Coliseum, Edmonton Coliseum, and Skyreach Centre. Currently named Rexall Place. It's in Edmonton,Alberta and the Great Hockey Player name Drive that Gary mentioned in the psuedo clue is Wayne Gretzky Drive NW. Please give the win to Gary as he clearly knew the answer before me (unless, of course, my answer is wrong).

edit: Don't want Mr. Gretzky angry with me for misspelling his name.

KneeDeep:

I would have posted the answer if I wanted the win, so it is yours. Find a good picture for us.

I believe I've found an interesting pic, but will wait for official confirmation of the win before posting.

Sir you are the winner. You got all of it.
I hearby declare Mr. KneeDeep
The grand prize winner. Please
take it away.
Mr Gretzky is in fact a very kind person,
and I know for a fact that misspelling his
name never upsets him.

Thank you, Mr Tooth sir.

Ok, I was looking for interesting locations and found this unique geological feature.
See if you can provide the name and location.

I do believe that someone is using a really wide angle lens.

USA - Yes.

Focal length - Certainly not a $160,000 lens ;)
Can't say for sure as it's not my photo and EXIF Data on the original is missing. My guess would be no, not extreme, as there doesn't appear to be much distortion. Probably no shorter then 28mm, but that's my opinion.

Man made - It's a real geological feature but there was some unintentional assistance with the initial formation. As far as I can tell, the photo is real and not 'shopped. I did check other images from other sources and the appearance is the same.

Like you said earlier ... Google is your friend :-]
I simply searched for different combinations of "movie door 2206" and those were on the first couple of pages I came across ...
http://www.google.com/search?q=2206&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-Address&ie=&oe=#q=2206+movie&hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-Address&prmd=imvns&ei=HDukT7H3G9HJ0AHd-NiZCQ&start=10&sa=N&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=6b4b1bdf32659c2&biw=1274&bih=580

I think the builder was the Son of a US Senator and an actor and playwright.
