‘Grown Ups 2’ Filming Locations in Marblehead, MA on May 24, 29 & 30

In addition to the Grown Ups 2 filming locations we published earlier this week, Marblehead, MA has made more information available about where the movie will be shooting over the next couple of weeks.

Below are details for shoots taking place on May 24, 29, & 30:

Thursday, May 24

[Location Manager Mark] Fitzgerald said 90 percent of the first day of local filming will take place inside of a home on Vassar Road, with some shooting to take place on the front porch.

On that day, the majority of the company’s trailers and equipment trucks will be parked at the Devereux Beach parking lot, Fitzgerald said.

A tent will be erected in the backyard of a home on Buchanan Road, which will allow producers to serve the cast and crew lunch without having to shuttle them back and forth from Devereux Beach.

Street Closure Schedule:

From 5 p.m. on May 23 to 9 p.m. on May 24, Vassar Road between Orchard Street and Summer Road will be closed as needed for filming. No parking will be allowed on the southeast side of Atlantic Avenue between Locust Street and Greystone Road. No parking on both sides of Vassar Road in its entirety and no parking on both sides of Gallison Avenue.

Tuesday, May 29:

You can expect a crowd of town residents to try their best to catch a glimpse of this “high school cheerleader car wash scene,” which Fitzgerald said will be shot in the 12 public parking spots at the end of Rockaway Avenue – located across the street from the Marblehead Museum and adjacent to the Jeremiah Lee Mansion.

Fitzgerald said Columbia Pictures will keep most of their equipment and trailers at the Old North Church parking lot and the crew will be eating their lunch at the Masonic Hall on Pleasant Street.

When board member Judie Jacobi voiced some concern regarding what exactly would be going on during this “cheerleader fundraiser car wash,” Fitzgerald assured her that “nothing terrible” would be going on, which drew a laugh from those in attendance.

Street Closure Schedule:

From 5 p.m. on Monday May 28 to 9 p.m. on Friday June 1, no parking tow zone signs will be posted on Rockaway Avenue and on parts of Washington Street and Rockaway Avenue to Darling Street will be closed off as needed for filming. The area connecting Pleasant Street to State Street will also be closed for filming. No parking will be allowed around the Old Town House on both sides and parts of Hooper Street may be shut down.

Wednesday, May 30

This scene, expected to depict a celebrity picking up their kids at school, will be shot at Marblehead Veterans Middle School while school is still in session.

Fitzgerald said the majority of equipment will be parked in the Devereux Beach parking lot and at Our Lady Star of the Sea Church, where “extras processing” will take place and a catered lunch will be served.

Shooting is planned for a small parking area on school property and the celebrities involved in the scene may create an environment that would be “a bad day for a pop quiz,” Fitzgerald joked.

Street Closure Schedule:

From 5 p.m. on Tuesday May 29 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday May 30, no parking tow zone signs will be posted on the northwest side of Pleasant Street from Prospect Street to Prince Street.

The is filming in several other Massachusetts towns this summer too, including Swampscott. If you spot Adam Sandler and crew in Massachusetts this summer, let us know at olv@onlocationvacations.com!
