A community meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 19, 6:30pm at the Nazzaro Center, 30 N. Bennet St. to discuss the upcoming filming of “What’s Your Number?” in the North End. The movie’s producers have created a site plan shown below (click to enlarge).
Nan Morales is the Executive Producer that will be presenting at the meeting. The movie is using the State’s film incentives and has chosen to have its two main characters “living” in the North End. Specifically, the movie has renovated an apartment at 14 Cooper Street (i.e., the “set”). Most of the outdoor filming will be “walking and talking.” There are no car chases or shooting scenes planned.
Filming is scheduled for Wednesday, May 26th and Thursday, May 27th. The movie currently has permission to shoot until from 7am to 11pm, but is asking to film to 2am. Night street scenes are an important part of the film, according to producers. Regarding local job creation, of the approximately 150 people on set, 110 are from Boston.
The movie production will be providing parking vouchers to make up for lost and restricted street access. All interested residents are encouraged to attend Wednesday’s meeting for more information.

Sounds like a move right out of the restaurant owners playbook. My license says I can stay open until 11 but I want to stay open until 4. Night street scenes might be important to the producers but SLEEP is important to the residents. Film until 2 then break down until 4AM. Why don’t they just film on Fri and Sat night when the neighborhood is already noisy at that hour!
I know the film industry is important to the city of Boston but consideration of the needs of its residents should count more then some low budget film producer who wants to work until the wee hours. ENOUGH!
