Film set

The crew of a movie called The Place Beyond the Plains did some filming here yesterday.  The filming closed State Street for several blocks.  That's sort of a big deal, as State Street is a major thoroughfare.

This is as close as I was allowed.  The bank on the far corner gets robbed in the film.  I didn't see any stunts; it was late in the day when I got home and got this photo..

Schenectady comes from a Mohawk name meaning something akin to 'beyond the pine plains'.  So it's interesting that the movie has such a similar name.  Although I really don't understand how a movie about a man who supports his family by robbing banks has anything to do with Schenectady!

  1. One of the producers was probably driving through one day and said "hey, this street would make a great scene" and new hollywood was (almost) born!
