Outliving Emily is filming, as you may have seen on Friday, on Westminster between Church Avenue and Beverley Road and on Marlborough Road between Church and Albemarle. We also noticed signs yesterday on Stratford Road between Church and Beverley.

There’s a lot of filming in the ‘hood these days, and we want to keep neighbors up to date on where to park (and where to watch if they’re interested). If we missed any blocks for the above shoots–or missed signs for any other productions–please send over a photo with info on specified blocks to

  1. There is also something else filming on the four corners of Argyle and Abelmarle. The signs say they only need two cars deep from the corner. It was insane looking for parking this week.

  2. Thank you–just updated the post. It’s “Experimenter,” a movie about Stanley Milgram’s obedience experiments, with Winona Ryder and Peter Sarsgaard. Sounds like it could be promising but oof, yeah, I can’t imagine trying to park this week.

  3. Call 311, Let them know too many things begin shot in our area, and it is becoming a major inconvenience and it is impacting our quality of life. Our neighborhood is not a backlot/studio. I urge all to call and make complaints to 311.It will make a difference. Have a great Day.

  4. I feel your pain, but it’s so great when you’re watching good TV (like Boardwalk empire or Louie) with friends or relatives and you say “see, that’s around the corner from where I live! Yeah, they shoot around there ALL THE TIME…”. Totally awesome.

  5. Totally agree with r-squared. you guys need to lighten up or rent space in someones driveway.

    I just called 311 and asked them to increase filming in the neighborhood if possible. :). I encourage everyone to do the same. Please set your speed dials to 311 and let them know we need to increase filming throughout the hood.

  6. I just called 311 and asked them to please sprinkle nails and shards of glass across all the parking spaces. That’ll show us!

  7. hott!! Call again in an hour and ask them to place muni meters on all side streets as well so when we go into Dominos on Cortelyou, we have no choice to feed the meter. Film crews should get a pass. Keep calling until you see new meters pop up.

  8. I will also call 311 to voice support for those people who park right out in the middle of CIA on Saturdays. They should get a pass.
