  1. Since Arthur ended up shooting downtown Tues night, I’m wondering if the Madison/64th St location will be for Wed, if anyone is in the area, let us know.

    I’ll have more updates in the morning!

  2. Yesterday, D left this comment:
    ‘Blue Bloods is filming in the Bronx tomorrow around 188 and Bellmont.’
    I’m thinking it might be for Thursday, maybe signs are to move cars Wed, tape Thursday.

    For today:
    via @IrishEDP:

    walked through the Blue Bloods set this morning, camera was clearly pointed at a jewelry store facade on Park Pl. with extras everywhere

  3. For CA:

    -Anyone know what’s filming at the Santa Anita race track? (CA)
    via @ashly_ttfn

    -More detail for “Law & Order” Los Angeles: continues filming in San Pedro Tue 14th & Wed 15th at a retail store on 7th st. and apartment complex on 18th st. (via @goforlocation)

    -Set signs on Locksley & Rosemead Blvd, any ideas what it might be? I thought maybe it was ‘The Office’, they were on location in Pasadena Mon & Tues?? (Thanks Jason)

    I have a few more updates I’ll add above too!

  4. While on my lunch break, I saw trailers and trucks for Arthur setting up on 60th street between Madison and Park, and the set is located on 61st between Madison and Park – signs everywhere!

  5. Yes I was there yesterday and they are filming the movie Real Steel at the parkway hotel, until Friday all the crore are tree and High Jackman is there and then they are moving to Milford, mi next week. They have cops on both sides of the road guarding, but you can drive throughout it and they are doing an outdoor scene the only way you could stay there is if you go through the woods.

  6. Christine, do you know how I would find the Running Wilde location at the Preserve? I went there last night and the place is scary as hell in the dark, straight out of a horror movie. Drove around for a few minutes then quickly got outta Dodge.

    P.S. Since you’re writing it every day, I figure I should probably correct you that it’s “Preserve”, not “Reserve”.

    • I guess the proves I’m not writing it everyday but rather copy and pasting. LOL, I’ll fix it, thanks,

      It’s scary, really? I am dying to go there, I was on the website a couple weeks ago and it looks kinda cool, maybe just not at night…

      Anyway, I *think* they close the entrance when they are filming, that is what it sounded like, how it has been described to me, it sounds like you really can’t get on the grounds at all during filming, but does that make sense? I don’t know what’s there exactly, there must be other people there who need to get in and out?

      If you aren’t far from there, I would take a drive by during the day, I suspect there is some type of barrier or security set up…

  7. The Good Wife is filming in LIC:

    @olv RT: @LICgifts The Good Wife CBS TV crew are outside of our studio for shooting again. #LIC Long Island City
    (Thanks @Jess_No10)

  8. Hi Christine.
    Allow me today to thanks go to Max:
    Max you are simply fantastic! You brought confirmation that Hugh is filming at the Parkway Hotel, and then they are moving to Milford, next week. Thank you !
    A big kiss from Rio de Janeiro for you all.

  9. RE: FYI: Just got an email from someone who lives in Holly saying the movie at the Parkway Motel is Real Steel, with Hugh Jackman. Can anyone confirm either way?

    I would just like to confirm that the movie is actually Real Steel with Hugh Jackman. I know of someone that Dreamworks has placed into a hotel not far from Holly, and they had told the person that Hugh Jackman was in the movie.

  10. YES, real steel is at parkway hotel, until Friday and Hugh jackman is there and dreamworks is doing it, so Spielberg might b there but all actors will be there and they updated the hotel and put a new huge sign on it and security Is ok there but not the greatest.

  11. Been driving past the Real Steel set every day this week. What I wouldn’t give to get an autograph for my daughters – who love Hugh Jackman (their mom is sort of fond of him, too).

    Anyway – Meadowbrook could be the theater, could be the ampitheater or even the Hall, it’s all on the campus of Oakland University in Rochester, MI.
