The production companies seem to like the historic ball field - which is nice since we can't seem to sustain a baseball team.
|Luther Williams Field|
Last night the movie "42" premiered in Macon. Some of it was shot here. The story is about Jackie Robinson's integration of baseball in 1947. The movie company used the ball field, a city block and a couple of homes.
|Chadwick Boseman was here.|
|Harrison Ford was here.|
|So was Christopher Meloni - Sawyer's "Law & Order: SVU" favorite.|
|See the green screen behind the lady?|
|The production crew had to post someone to watch the display. |
The vegetables were real and obviously too good for some spectators to pass up.
|Small's Department Store is really the Greek Corner Deli. Best gyros in town. |
The existing businesses stayed open most of the time closing only during the actual filming.
|This is a pizza place..|
|They used this house in the movie. It's been for sale for a while. The hardwood floors on the first floor were warped. The production company paid to use the house and to to have the entire floor replaced. What a deal!|
You didn't think I could do it, did you? :)
