More dates announced for ‘Joy’, starring Jennifer Lawrence, filming in North Reading, MA


Joy, aka Kay’s Baptism, will return to North Reading, MA on March 11, March 12, and tentatively March 23. Filming has been taking place in a garage on Winter Street, causing street closures and detours for locals.

Joy, which chronicles the unlikely rise of Miracle Mop inventor and HSN regular Joy Mangano, stars Jennifer Lawrence, as Mangano, along with Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper.

We’ve heard Cooper was spotted in North Reading yesterday.

  1. I was in Lynn, MA where Kay’s Baptism was filming very disappointing streets blocked for at least 2 blocks could not get close to shooting, unlike filming of Forger in 2013. Very disappointed in the production company of this film no compassion for fans.
