And on the seventh day they rested. All was relatively quiet on Southborough’s movie set today. A calm before tomorrow’s storm.
Expect plenty of traffic and activity in town tomorrow. In addition to all the movie-related traffic, there will likely be plenty of media in town. And that includes paparazzi possibly hanging from the trees. Paparazzi in Southborough. How surreal.
Access to Common and St. Mark’s Street will be restricted to movie folk only. If you want to watch the action, you’ll probably have to do it from down on Main Street.
Also expect parking restrictions along Main Street and some side streets.
Monday they’re scheduled to shoot at the front of Pilgrim Church, which will likely afford better views for onlookers than shoots at the side of the church. You can view the shoot schedule here, but keep in mind that it could change.

What fun for Southborough. Margie Coldwell clued me in on the Pilgrim Church filming, and gave me your email contact. We bought our first home, with a GI loan, in Southborough in 1946 and lived on Fisher Road for forty one years. Dave and I, with our sons, Dave and Greg, were members of Pilgrim Church and both served many years as youth advisors and church school teachers, as well as filling a variety of church officers. Leaving Southborough in 1987 was one of the most difficult times in our lives but retirement drew us to a warmer clime and the joys of living on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. Ten years ago, I moved from the Shore to a retirement community in Virginia Beach and am still enjoying an active life. Thanks for your pictures and blogs, you have brought the good Southborough days back into my life. Marjory Taylor
