Don’t forget to check out our Upcoming Filming Locations and Events Calendar above too for more locations and information!


  1. Just walked by a sign in my neighborhood of Jackson Heights for a movie with John Leguizamo called “FUGLY” filming tomorrow and friday. The street it looks like it will be filming on is 83rd st. between 37th st. and Roosevelt Ave.

  2. How bout transformers 3 where are they filming today and tomorrow I herd circus park tomorrow and they are going to blow up a four story building.

    • That’s what I heard too, was that Circus Park would be next, but yesterday was such a cluster, I didn’t want to add to the post and have the confusion we had before. I had four different locations from 5 different people yesterday and still haven’t confirmed that any one of them was right so I gave up! LOL

      I’ll tweet out the Circus Park rumor and see if anyone can confirm.

    • Like I said in the post, I’m not sure if that tip was for today or not, so if anyone is around there please let us know.
      PS- The W.E. info is getting tweeted by other people (w/out credit to OLV of course) saying that Madonna is filming on 4th today- but I am pretty sure we are the original source on that so watch out if you’re trying to find info on Twitter.
      (If people are going to steel our info, I at least wish they would tell the whole story! :))

    • This is what I’ve been telling people in emails & on Twitter- I haven’t heard any different and usually we would have heard about signs or something if they were filming somewhere else so it looks like studio, if you hear differently, please let us know.

  3. Transformers 3 is setting up props and destroyed cars at the train station off Michigan Ave. Also saw Vamps basecamp behind the Masonic Temple off of Cass Ave. Also Transformers 3 has a mock office building built in a parking lot off of Lafeyette St. with prop rocket boosters. Still trying to find Hostel 3 set location as there is “Six” signs on Michigan Ave. but no dice.

    • thanks for the info Scott, this is where tings get dicey, I just got a tip that ‘This Must Be the Place’ (w/ Sean Penn) has set up base camp this morning at Burton School on Cass Ave. in Detroit, MI, are both Vamps and This Must Be The Place filming off of Cass Ave?

      • Hey Scott, thanks again, was mapping out ‘Vamps’ vs. ‘This Must Be The Place” and looks like they are far enough apart that its possible they are both set up at those different locations, did you happen to drive down Cass, wondering if you saw anything for This Must Be The Place’.

        Thanks again for the great T3 tip too!! And I’ll have people on the look out for those Six signs too!

          • Hey Christine, This must be the place is kiddie corner on the east side of Cass Ave, found out by the lot security (armed!) guard. I wasn’t sure because I saw Haddad’s trailers in both lots but this is confirmed for the base camp is on the east side of Cass Ave for This must be the place, and Vamps is on west side of Cass parked behind the Masonic Temple and saw “Vamps” on the doors of a few of the trucks. Sorry for the confusion. Also seen signs on Rosa Parks today for “A S” but now sign of a set.

            • Thank you so much for confirming Scott- I really appreciate the help, with both sets so close I just wanted to verify that was the case. And I guess they aren’t fooling around if they have an armed guard!

              Thanks again!

  4. Two more notes for NYC:

    CSI:NY will be doing its annual NYC shoots sometime next week so be on the look out for signs.

    (Speaking of which CSI:NY is not in studio today, they are on location in L.A. if anyone spots them, let us know)

    Also, Jon Hamm said this morning (on Regis and Kelly) that he is shooting ‘Friends W/ Kids’ in NYC this fall too!

  5. Lokks like your tip on Boardwalk Empire was bad,it was held yesterday here in NYC,not Atlantic City and it was yesterday,not today.Better luck next time.

    • Thats what we originally had, then someone sent us the link in the calendar saying that it would be in Atlantic City, sorry for the confusion, since none of the info had an exact location, I went with the link that seemed more current.
      As you know, sometimes these things are hit and miss, I do the best I can with what info I receive.

  6. Any confirmation on the Transformers 3 shoot at the Central Station? My dad drove by and said he saw minimal activity. Maybe it’s just quiet set up day? I’m not doubting Scotts excellent work cause I appreciate it too, but I was just wondering if anyone has seen anything different?

  7. Major robotic equipment was seen loaded up on a flat bed trailer at the Lafayette/Howard location for Transformers 3. So it seems like things are winding down there. The train station only had a couple guys and a couple cabs at it. I don’t think they were filming there yet. Don’t know about the Circus Park shoot.

  8. Does anyone know when John Leguizamo’s movie Fulgy is supposed to be done shooting? or about when the movie should be coming out? My daughter is in it, and so far no info yet…thanks!
