Spielberg's Munich was shot in Fort Greene (partly)


Those who have seen, or are planning, to watch Spielberg's latest movie, Munich, will be interested to know that it was filmed partly in Fort Greene from September 25-27, 2005 in the neighborhood. You can catch the movie at BAM right now.

As the Spielberg site points out:

NEW YORK CITY September 25-27. Production shot for three days in New York,
specifically the Fort Greene area of downtown Brooklyn. The production was
working under the working title of “King’s Cross,” which ironically was one of
the names bandied about earlier on last year when the film was still untitled in
the public.

yup...some scenes were filmed in BLACK IRIS on deKalb. they converted their awning and stuff to make it look like a quaint '70s euro-grocery.

Funny story about staging of BLACK IRIS... The day before they began shooting, i went to Mario's for a slice of pizza. They did a very convincing job of converting the restuarant into a grocery. While i was waiting outside for my pizza, a lady walked up to what she thought was Black Iris. After standing there dumbfounded for at least a minute, she turned to me and asked, "Wow, when did they open a produce market in the area?" I guess that fact that apples were going for 25cents/pound didnt clue her in. She then curiously goes inside, only to come out blushing shortly after.

I dont know what's worse the fact that Fort Greene doesnt have any decent produce markets, or the fact that folks are moving into FG who are so gullible.

It was also shot on Washington Park, across the street from Ft. Greene Park. I live on that block and I remember the inconvenience.

I was shocked by how many blockfronts had been closed for filming (including all traffic on two blocks of Dekalb) until I realized it was Speilberg's shoot. He must have had 8 or 9 block fronts closed off to traffic/pedestrians/parking, etc.
