More filming location details for ‘The Judge’, starring Robert Downey, Jr., in Shelburne Falls, MA

As we’ve reported, Robert Downey, Jr.’s next project, The Judge, will begin filming in Shelburne Falls, MA soon, and now we have more details about exactly where and when they’ll be shooting around town.

According to local reports, on May 31, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., the production will film aerial views of a funeral procession down Shelburne Falls’ main streets. A helicopter will be used to get shots circling through the village and from the rooftop of McCusker’s Market Building.

Several Shelburne Falls storefronts will also be featured in the movie during filming, including Neighbors convenience store, the old Mole Hollow Candle Co, Good Spirits liquor store, Rethreads consignment store, Baker’s Pharmacy, Singley’s Furniture, and Wandering Moon.

In addition, the Shelburne Police Station, Bridge Street, Zerah Fiske Road, Arms Cemetery, and Shelburne Falls’ Memorial Hall, which they would use for rehearsing, staging and extras holding, will also be filming locations.

In the Buckland side of the village, Clement Street, State Street, Salmon Falls Artisans Showroom, and part of the Lamson & Goodnow property will be used in the movie.

The shoot is expected to last from May 31 to June 18 in Shelburne Falls before moving to Boston.

Leighton Meester, Vera Farmiga, Robert Duvall, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Billy Bob Thornton also star in the movie which focuses on a man who returns to his hometown for his mother’s funeral.

Boston Casting is handling all extras for The Judge.

  1. I happy that our wonderful town of Shelburne for the movie.
    We have a great town and so pretty, I hope everyone enjoys the town.
    I have lived here for 50 years and it is my hubby’s home town.

  2. 25 white trucks from film crew of the Judge are parked at Glover School in Milton, MA this morning on my 6 am walk. Looks like they are filming in Milton today on School Street.

  3. Was wondering what this was! I can’t get down School Street in Milton and the kids can’t play at the Glover Playground!

  4. Today there were many signs and movie trucks along Rte.2. Most of the movie trucks were at MCI Concord. Apparently Robert Downey Jr. was there yesterday. I am not sure if he is still in or will be filming in Concord. I thought the movie that was being filmed was called “St. More” because that is what all the signs say. A local web site confirmed that the movie being filmed is “The Judge”.
