Residents turn out to screen movie set in Washington
WASHINGTON — More than 200 people crowded into the hall at Camp Morgan on Friday night for a screening of a movie set and filmed in the small town.
“3 Days of Normal” was filmed in and around Washington in the fall of 2010.
The independent romantic comedy had a limited release earlier this year and has been making the film festival circuit, but this was the first opportunity residents had to watch the film, which features much of the town as though Washington was just another character in the film.
The independent film was produced by From Out of the Woodwork Productions and centers on a lonely Washington cop who takes in a reckless Hollywood starlet over a long weekend.
The films leading man, Jace Mclean of Brooklyn, N.Y., grew up in Antrim and Dublin, so he was familiar with the area. Still, finding locations for the film he co-wrote with producer Jared Parson was an ordeal, he said.
“A lot of towns, when you tell them you want to film a movie, they freak out. They don’t know what you’re talking about and what it entails. Washington was, like, ‘Yes’ and so was Hillsborough, and the cops were all great,” McLean said.
A jail scene was filmed in the Hillsborough police station, and the police station interior and exterior scenes were filmed at the Washington police station.
Both McLean and Parsons attended Friday night’s screening, McLean with his wife, Jill, and their 7-month-old son, Levi.
Meg Curtis, proprietor of Stonewall Farm Bed & Breakfast where the crew stayed during filming, was just as thrilled to meet Levi as she was to see the movie.
When the film crew stayed with her in the fall of 2010, Curtis got to know the actors well and even kept their shooting schedule.
“I served them diner as late as 10 o’clock at night some nights,” she said.
