Maybe you love the idea of a major motion picture being filmed in your town, but you have no desire to be an extra in the film. Well, you can go check out a film site and possibly catch a glimpse of a celebrity! So far, there have been reports of the cast and crew filming at a variety of locations all over D.C. and Northern Virginia. Starting on Wednesday, June 13, film crews were seen between Wisconsin Avenue and M Street, as well as Water Street and K Street. The defunct Landmark Mall in Alexandria, which has also been used for filming, has been transformed to resemble a retro mall from the 1980s, as the movie is set in 1984 (hence the title!). The U.S. Treasury building in Washington was also used for shooting on June 12.
