West Hartford is all aflutter. Scenes from a movie are being filmed here! "Pawn" is a movie that should hit the theaters in 2013. It is about small time crooks who commit a robbery at a diner, unaware that the diner is a front for the mob. The movie crew has transformed a recently closed restaurant in West Hartford Center into a pretty convincing diner.The movie features Forest Whitaker and several other actors whom I am supposed to know. But don't. The police officer at the left in the top photo is Whitaker. I think.
The crew starts filming at 4 p.m. and continues well into the early hours. I took these photos at 8 p.m. because I need my beauty sleep.
