‘1:30 Train’ Again Filming Today, Marking 5th Consecutive Week of Filming on the LES

Count it – there have been five consecutive weeks of filming across the Lower East Side.

November opened with a time warp back to an early-1900s street scene with The Knick. It was followed in quick succession by Adam Sandler’s The Cobbler, Person of Interest, and 1:30 Train. The latter production is returning to the neighborhood again later tonight.

Signs have staked out the latest real estate for filming since Sunday – Orchard and Allen Streets, south of Delancey. Much like the previous shoot, this one will transpire through the wee hours of the night. Sleep tight.

Captain America‘s Chris Evans pulls triple duty on 1:30 Train – director, producer, actor – and stars alongside romantic lead Alice Eve. The story focuses on a woman (Eve) who misses the 1:30 train to Boston and a street musician who spends the night to help her make it back home.

Ergo, all filming sessions will likely be at night.
