This is an ACTUAL
memo I was given tonight by security staff at my building tonight. I think this is the definition of high class meets low class:ULTIMA REAL ESTATE SERVICES

To: Healey tenants
From Management Office
Please be advised that there will be a film crew in the lobby of the Healey building on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, January 17,18, and 19, 2003.
The producers of the movies "Dumb and Dumber I & 11" will be filming a pre-quel. This movie will date back to when the main characters of the previous movies were in high school. The Healey will be used as the setting for a natural history museum.
Most of the film will be shot in the atrium section of the lobby. Only one brief scene will be shot at the area by the elevators.
The film crew don't expect that you will be inconvenienced as you enter and exit the building. However, a certain times of the day, a few of you may be asked to wait a minute or two before you may enter or exit the building. This is to prevent interference with the filming.
On Friday, Jan. 17th after 6:00pm they will only be setting up the cameras and stage sets. On Saturday and Sunday from 7:30am to 7:30 pm filming will be in progress.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and we apologize for any inconvenience.
Um, WHAT?! LOL, that is so funny. Well, not the movie surely but hell, the concept of it. Too bad our condo association still isn't together yet (we need to get 85% sold) or we'd have pocked the fee from the movie producers. As it is, our fat cat development company Ultima will get it.
Now for those who are wondering where I live that people would be using it as a stand-in for a natural history museum, here are some links to pages in the Downtown photo database showing the lobby as well as an arial shot:From Above (the White BuildingMain EntranceLobby Shot 1Lobby Shot 2...and my favorite thing: The Rotunda Shot 1
