That scene from "Revolutionary Road" filmed in the East Village

I finally got around to watching the (cough) promo copy of "Revolutionary Road" that a friend passed along...(Been also meaning to read the book by Richard Yates)...I was curious about the film, which is up for three Academy Awards tonight.

As you may recall, a scene for the movie was filmed inside 295 E. Eighth St. at Avenue B back in June 2007. The production hogged up good chunks of Avenue B between Sixth Street and 10th Street. Plus the north side of Seventh Street between Avenue A and Avenue C. Anyway, I wrote about all this here.



The scene they filmed in the neighborhood is in the very beginning...the exterior shot is of another building in the neighborhood, not 295 E. Eighth Street...



The scene is where Kate and Leo first meet...




Oh, and for the record, I didn't care much for the film.

Grieve, you had me worried there for a while. I can't watch anything with DiCaprio in it. What was this film nomintated for anyway, costumes?

Nice catch on the locations, though.

The role required a strong Don Draper type...
