Fifty Shades of Grey crew added palm trees to the lawn of The Fish House in Stanley Park today to film scenes inside with cast and dozens of extras. Originally built as a Sports Pavilion in 1930 for tennis players and golfers in the park, the building would not look out of place in the Caribbean. It’s been known as The Fish House in Stanley Park since 1990 .
Once Upon a Time’s spring premiere next year is entitled New York City Serenade. Showrunner Adam Horowitz shared the title spoiler in mid-November and we’ve seen several location shoots for episode 3×12 in downtown Vancouver dressed as New York City — from Gastown’s Koret Lofts to Stanley Park dressed as Central Park to the Vancouver Club as NYPD 35th Precinct to Yaletown’s Brix restaurant and wine bar as a NYC restaurant Ostria. And even more of us have seen prop NYC cabs either parked or circling city blocks from downtown to Yaletown. I first saw filming for New York City Serenade in Stanley Park but withheld the photos of Hook’s arrest by New York police as spoilers. They still are and I would have kept [...]
SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME’s Jennifer Morrison & Colin O’Donoghue in Stanley Park as NYC’s Central Park
Who needs a Leaf Lady to scatter bags of dried leaves on a beautiful fall day in Stanley Park ? Once Upon a Time filmed a #SwanCaptain/#CaptainSwan — Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) and Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) — scene among autumn leaves south of Lumberman’s Arch today dressed as New York City’s Central Park. Someone spotted the modern fairy tale production in the morning but I missed most of the shoot, arriving in the afternoon as cast wrapped. Shortly after, crew packed up and left the park. On Tuesday, Once Upon a Time shot scenes at Strathcona School and in Gastown’s Koret Lofts, part of a recent shift out of studio and back into more on-location filming in and around Vancouver. Update: Does #SwanCaptain/#CaptainSwan have the [...]
What’s going on with Hawaii Five-O? Five weeks ago the CBS reboot came to Vancouver to film inserts of Kono (Grace Park) and Adam (Ian Anthony Dale) on the run in east Vancouver/Chinatown as Kowloon/Hong Kong, which we’ve seen spread out over a few recent episodes. Related: Hawaii Five-O’s Grace Park films in Vancouver’s Chinatown as Hong Kong. Now production is filming scenes of Vancouver with a prop Vancouver, B.C. yellow cab in Kaimuki, Hawaii.

Hawaii Five-O [is filming here for a few days] to the surprise of everyone.The CBS reboot appeared on a BC production list last week and talk was H5-O would film scenes set somewhere in China. But why come to Vancouver for that? Turns out the show did this to accommodate local star Grace Park (Officer Kono Kalakaua), who gave birth here recently. Someone said fellow cast Alex O’Loughlin (Steve McGarrett) and Scott Caan (Detective Dano Williams) flew in to shoot scenes on Friday, but I can’t confirm it. Daniel Dae Kim (Det. Lt. Chin Ho Kelly) was spotted at a car scene out in Stanley Park against a North Vancouver backdrop (see @SarahHeartie’s photo) today. And H5-0 then moved to [...]
Words and Pictures premieres tonight at the Toronto International Film Festival with a gala presentation in Roy Thompson Hall. Stars Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche and director Fred Schepisi told ET Canada on the red carpet that they loved shooting the movie in Vancouver. Words and Pictures is about a private school English teacher and art teacher who complicate their lives with a rivalry that blossoms into romance. Jack Marcus (Clive Owen) is a writer past his prime. A former literary star, he drinks too much, is estranged from his son and hasn’t published in years. Dina Delsanto (Juliette Binoche) is an abstract painter past her prime too. Once an art world luminary, her arthritis makes painting too difficult now. Fed [...]
Published August 22nd, 2013 on Vancouver is Awesome. Who painted those famous 1950s and ’60s portraits of doe-eyed children? Tim Burton’s indie biopic Big Eyes tells the story of Margaret Keane (Amy Adams), an artist whose ambitious husband Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz ) successfully sold her work around the world under his own name. Years after their 1965 divorce, she challenged him to a paint off in San Francisco’s Union Square but he didn’t show. The decades-long battle to reclaim her work didn’t end until 1986 in a federal court when a judge ordered a paint off in front of a jury. She painted a portrait in 53 minutes while her ex-husband begged off because of “a shoulder injury”. Blockbuster filmmaker [...]
Have you ever seen those 1960s and 70s paintings of children with over-sized eyes? Tim Burton’s biopic Big Eyes tells the story of the San Francisco art couple, Walter and Margaret Keane, made famous by the paintings and their tumultuous relationship. Their breakup led to a divorce and court battle over who actually painted the big-eyed waifs, ending with a judge-ordered paint-off. Guess who won? Margaret Keane painted them all. In this afternoon’s scene, filmed in Stanley Park near Lumberman’s Arch, a young Margaret Keane (Amy Adams) draws a large-eyed portrait of a little girl, as background performers in period clothing stroll up and down the art fair set. Director Tim Burton (on left) oversees the set up of the [...]
King & Maxwell crew turned the Stanley Park Pavilion into the Leavitt Inn, the site of an attempted assassination at a Washington D.C. press conference. Today was the day for all the exterior scenes including one on the other side of former secret service agent Michelle Maxwell (Rebecca Romijn) coming around the side of a prop catering van with her gun extended after shots are fired. Crew called out “Bang Bang” as a signal for the background performers to scatter on each take. Tomorrow production moves inside for gunfire scenes in the ballroom and maintenance tunnel. Catherine Bell is guest-starring in this episode, one of several this season, but I haven’t heard how her character fits in.
Second star to the right is a direction to Neverland, where Once Upon a Time is headed tonight. When Rumplestiltskin balks at giving up his powers in Fairytale Land and lets his son travel alone through a portal, young Baelfire (Dylan Schmid) finds himself in 19th century London where he is befriended by young Wendy Darling (Freya Tingley) and introduced to Neverland. How will Once Upon a Time modernize the iconic story of Peter Pan? Meanwhile in present-day, grownup Baelfire/Neal (Michael Raymond-James) has a long overdue talk with his lost love Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrsion), who surely reminds him of Wendy Darling.
