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.
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.
This souvenir shop on Ferry St is now closed (I’m not sure how long it has been closed for). As you can see, they went bankrupt.
From a Marketwire press release:
The May concert line-up at Fallsview Casino gets off to a great start with two shows by stand-up comedian Sinbad on May 6 & 7. The Michigan native began his career in the late 1980s as a television actor including a self-titled sitcom series. Sinbad has a number of feature film credits and his multiple stand-up comedy shows have been featured on HBO.
The movie is called “Thank You”
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:
Pylons on Clifton Hill
