White Rock’s waterfront is set to be the location for two filming projects in the next several days, according to a city media release.
On Thursday, Sept. 8, the promenade will take on a distinctly American look as the Canadian flag at the pier will be taken down and replaced by the Stars and Stripes for a 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. shoot.
To help complete the required Los Angeles waterfront atmosphere, a number of potted palm trees will be trucked in and placed along the promenade.
There will also be a one-day closure of the area to the public during the filming, set up and take down.
A post on the City of White Rock’s Twitter feed Tuesday noted, “There may be occasional ‘hold ups’ of two minutes while the actors perform.
White Rock is going to play a town in California! A production will be filming on the promenade by the Pier and Memorial Park on Thurs. Sept. 8 from 7am to 2pm. There may be occasional “hold ups” of two minutes while the actors perform. Thank you for your patience #WhiteRockBC pic.twitter.com/0SXfMkkIkQ

From Sept. 10 to Sept. 13 the pier flag will be down again for another production, as the pier is decorated to resemble the embarkation point for a cruise ship in Italy in the 1940s.
The flag will be down from 3:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 12 until 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 14; there will also be alternating single-lane traffic in the 14300 block of Marine Drive from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday.
The pier itself will be closed to the public from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sept. 13 during filming of the embarkation scenes.
