Lowell, MA is the New Hollywood
Ricky Gervais is shooting his movie, This Side of the Truth, in downtown Lowell, Massachusetts! Read his blog about it here Apparently Lowellians are quiet and polite, who knew?
For the past two days the film crew has been set up on our street and filming in The Dubliner pub (The Dub). I had a chance to hang out across the street and stargaze a bit, catching Ricky and ribald comedian Louis CK with my digital camera. I love seeing famous people! I think it's fun.
Here's a link to my fairly dull video of the take they were filming while I was watching. unfortunately they were indoors, but toward the end, Ricky and Louis come out the door of the pub.
Fun Lowell Movie Fact: Danas Luncheonette was filmed for a soda fountain scene in the 1992 film, School Ties
