NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ The stately halls of Yale University got a shot of Hollywood glamour this weekend with Julia Roberts in town to shoot scenes for her new movie, ``Mona Lisa Smile.″

Yale stands in for the Massachusetts campus of Wellesley College in 1953 for the movie about an art history professor, played by Roberts, who helps young female students find themselves.

Giant tents have been set up on the New Haven Green to accommodate the film crew. Shooting will take place in a Yale classroom, library and art museum.

The movie also stars Kirsten Dunst and Julia Stiles.
