No Comments

From the St Catharines Standard:

Niagara Falls is the backdrop for an award-winning Canadian drama opening at the Niagara Square Cinemas Friday.

“Mary Goes Round,” the debut feature from Toronto director Molly McGlynn, stars Aya Cash (“You’re the Worst”) as a substance abuse counselor named Mary who loses her job and driver’s license because of a drinking problem. She’s then asked to meet her estranged father in her hometown of Niagara Falls, who is dying and hopes to see her connect with her teenaged half-sister who she has never met.

Comic Con gives Star Wars fans something to ‘Chewie’ on

From Niagara This Week:

As an actor, Peter Mayhew has been a part of one of the most successful film franchises of all time.

But you may not recognize him if you met him on the street.

Mayhew, of course, is best known to Star Wars fans as Chewbacca, Han Solo’s wookie sidekick. Fans will get a chance to see the man behind all that hair and makeup when he makes a rare Canadian appearance in Niagara Falls later this year, when Niagara Falls Comic Con takes over the Scotiabank Convention Centre from June 2 to 4.

“There’s no question that Star Wars is hands down the most popular film series of all time, so we couldn’t be more excited to land one of the more well known characters from the movie franchise,” said Chris Dabrowski, Comic Con’s show manager. “This will be a real treat for Star Wars fans of the original and new movies.”

I was walking past the Niagara Parks Police headquarters today (across the gorge and street from the American Falls) and someone made me walk around. They said they were filming a TV show. There was no sign of what network or what production company it was.

Filming a movie in Niagara Falls

As you’ve heard, there is a movie filming in Niagara Falls that started today. The movie is called “A Beginner’s Guide to Endings” and apparently stars Dennis Hopper (even though he is currently undergoing treatment for prostate cancer).

I saw some actual filming today (“Action!, Cut!”), but I didn’t recognize anyone. They were filming at the entrance to Dracula’s Haunted House.

Here are some pictures of what I saw today:
