YA they are at my house. I was late to school cuz they had both ends of
my road closed. They're at the baseball fields across from the deli now. And

Linfield Set Report

Today The Happening is filming in Unionville.

On someone posted a set report from yesterdays Linfield set:

They were shooting at a greenhouse that is literally RIGHT behind my moms
work!!! They had the road closed, but by the time i got there they were all
gone. My best friend works like less than a minute away from my mom at a deli
and they had all the trailers and stuff across the road at a church, so they
came in to her work for lunch! She wasnt working bc we were at school but one of
the guys she worked with said that when the people came in for lunch they told
him they would tell Mark to come in, but he never did. But other production guys
came in later and she waited on them. I was so jealous! i was like WHy did i
quit?!! haha! I know theyre coming back bc an older couple came into the deli
and said they were filming in there barn soon, but they didnt know the exact
date. they said probably tomarrow. Sry that i rambled im just really excited!!!
I really wanted to see mark!!!!

Unionville/Tip/Set Report

The filming location is some where near this address, because this is the staging area or "base camp":

St. Michael Lutheran Church

109 E. Doe Run Road

Unionville, PA 19375

A tipster has informed me that production in the city of Philadelphia is mostly done with, most of the filming will now be done in the burbs.

This was left in the comments:

They are filming somewhere in Linfield, PA today. Trailers are parked in
the Blessed Theresa of Calcutta parking lot. and in the Linfield National Golf
Course lot. Wonder what is being shot there?


The Greenhouse

From my e-mail inbox:

Hello Buzz, Today they are filming in my hometown of Linfield.
The crew for TH (I guess that means THE HAPPENING) are in town filming at a
green house. I drove by and saw Mark Walhberg near the set. I am hoping to go
back and get some photos tonight.

Filming Locations/Press

This is the address of Tuesdays staging area. The set should be fairly near by.

Linfield National Golf Course

66 Church Rd.

Linfield, PA 19468

At work this morning I was reading the paper (on company time, wouldn't have it any other way) and found this:

M. Night Shyamalan is going for his first-ever R rating with his new film, The Happening, and people on both sides of City Avenue could see why.

Shyamalan and company staged a death scene and a bloody car crash Tuesday for the thriller about a family on the run. The crew erected large screens on 69th Street near City Avenue in the Overbrook Farms section to shield the curious from the "deaths." Still, one passenger aboard a SEPTA bus seemed stunned at the scene, which made graphic use of lifeless stuntmen.

Later on, in Wynnewood, a speeding jeep occupied by John Leguizamo was filmed crashing into a tree on Andover Road where it splits to Allendale Road and forms a grassy island popular among dogs. The tree was a prop, and the "wrecked" jeep was suspended by cables and pulleys. On crew members' way out, they planted flowers and spruced up the knoll.

Wednesday found the company in Center City on Smedley Street near Pine. Liz Sieber, who owns the boutique Omoi nearby, reports a jingling cash register while Shyamalan and star Mark Wahlberg were out front. Shyamalan bought a hat and gave it to a crew member, Sieber says, and costar Zooey Deschanel bought string dolls. Thursday and Friday, the crew filmed on Rittenhouse Square.

With that, The Happening is out of the city and off to the suburbs (including Pottstown and West Chester) for the duration. Twentieth Century Fox has set a June release date.
