I had an interesting experience Sunday morning with the folks filming Wonder Woman. I was out for a bike ride and decided to go down Pennsylvania from the Capitol towards downtown and saw the set for Wonder Woman a couple of blocks down the street. I was stopped at a red light about a block away and snapped a picture then rode down to where Pennsylvania was closed, right on the edge of the film set. As I was getting ready to snap a couple of pictures from this location, a woman who I assume was a production assistant told me and a couple of other folks not to take pictures or video (she was nice enough to say please). I found this odd since I was standing on a public street taking a picture of an event that was also happening on a public street. (more…)
Thanks to Dottie for sending: “I saw the WW2 director, Patty Jenkins, crossing at Wisconsin and M. Patty directed last year’s WW blockbuster and is an AFI alum. I think she’s as much a superstar at Gal Gadot and Kristen Wiig!”
Thanks to Hallie for sending: “Taken from the top of the Hirshhorn musem! They were filming in the courtyard area under the building.” (more…)

“Wonder Woman filming – Pennsylvania Ave NW – all weekend
Just got a notice from my workplace on 9th St NW (at the corner of Pennsylvania Ave NW) saying our parking garage is closed all weekend for filming of the “Magic Hour” which I learned from PoPville is the new Wonder Woman film. VERY exciting.
Here’s the full info pasted below on street closures — note that “across from 801 Pennsylvania Ave NW” is basically across from the Navy Memorial, which began construction in 1985 and was unveiled in 1987, so if the rumor that the film takes place in 1984 is true, then they won’t be showing the Memorial itself in the film if they are being historically accurate.
TENANT NOTIFICATION (more…)
1415 Wisconsin Ave, NW formerly Appalachian Spring
Thanks to SinSA for sending:
“I was walking down Wisconsin Avenue earlier, and it looks like they’re making a storefront for Commander Salamander in Georgetown. I know that Wonder Woman is filming in this area, so it probably is for the movie.”
Commander Salamander was located at 1420 Wisconsin Ave, NW and is now an M&T Bank.
Thought you might like this – we got this notice about a movie filming in the next couple weeks on Wisconsin Ave.
Magichour (notice awesome logo) is actually Wonder Woman 2, according to the Google.”
Side Note: My sources on the street tell me that Chris Pine and Kristen Wiig were spotted at Chaia (3207 Grace Street, NW.) No Gal Gadot sightings yet.
From a press release:
“Union Market’s popular Drive-In Movie Series returns this Spring with a special screening of Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark on Friday, May 11 at 8pm. The Harrison Ford classic will officially kick off the annual Americana-inspired drive-in experience held in the Market’s parking lot (1309 5th Street NE) and projected onto the wall. Each family-friendly showing is free for walk-up film fans viewing in the picnic area, or costs $10 per car. (more…)
To everyone who got MoviePass and was sad that it didn’t work for all the awesome Landmark Theatres in the DC area, rejoice! You can now go to any of the Landmark theatres using MoviePass. That means E St, Atlantic Plumbing, West End, etc. Now if only I could go back in time a week and stop myself from paying non-MoviePass money to see Isle of Dogs…”
