Amy Schumer Filming in the Neighborhood

Dear Neighbors:

 

A production company will be in Boston capturing scenes for a new feature film starring Amy Schumer. On August 7, between 9 am and 7 pm, the crew will be filming scenes in two restaurants on Tremont Street near Union Park. 

No streets will need to be closed for this purpose. Residents and business patrons will be not be restricted from places, but still may be asked to wait a few minutes at time while the cameras are rolling. 

The company will be parking their trucks in metered spaces on Tremont Street. Also, there will be a catering truck for the crew parked at St. John's Church on Union Park Street.   
 

Finally, the crew will be back on August 18th to film at one of the stores on Union Park Street. We will have more information about that later.

 
A flyer concerning the project is attached. We hope that this will not pose a major inconvenience for anyone, but please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

TITO PUENTE CONCERT SERIES

Created in honor of Latin music icon, Tito Puente, this series is celebrating 11 years of bringing live Latin music with a strong salsa influence to Boston parks.

This series is sponsored in part by Berklee College of Music,

The radio was made by Sylvania – of all things – and was just a little grey rectangular box that fit just right in one’s hand. It had the tuner on top, the speaker below and a sturdy antenna that you could pull up or push down. It even had a nice string to go around the wrist so you wouldn’t drop it.

You couldn’t break it. I dropped it, a softball smashed it, and even aguyontheTbussatonitand crushed it by accident. In all cases, I was able to re-assemble it, put it all back together and duck tape it secure. Such a thing back then was made to last. Low-tech and long lasting.

That thing went everywhere with me.

I listened to the Sox almost every night. Joe Castiglione was my best friend that summer. On my walk to my part-time week- end job, I’d dial up old WILD AM radio to hear classic soul in the mornings. There was always WBZ to catch the breaking news (as an aside: anyone feel like there is a lot more breaking news than there used to be? I think the stan- dards for breaking news, much

Free salsa lessons led by MetaMovements at select con- certs.
