Welcome To The Bitchery

What is the most famous movie filmed in your hometown?*

Capote was filmed in my hometown, and it was a big deal. There had only been a few movies filmed here, mostly stuff that went direct to video. So to have a major production that was eventually nominated for Best Picture (and won its star an acting award) was very, very cool. (Shall We Dance? had a higher budget and made more money, but I think Capote will be remembered longer) I never got to meet PSH or Catherine Keener, which makes me sad, but I heard all sorts of stories about how they and Chris Cooper were extremely nice.

*If you grew up in LA or NYC, maybe just share a filming memory you have.
