On Monday, the Tavern was part of the film making experience for Dreamworks picture titled Revolutionary Road. Staring Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio and Cathy Bates, and directed by Sam Mendes, the film, based on the book by Richard Yates, is being shot at locations throughout central Fairfield County.

The Tavern had a supporting role for a scene filmed a few doors up Silvermine Avenue at a private home. Our parking lot was used for the large wardrobe, makeup and service trucks as well as the private dressing room trailers of the actors. In addition, the cast and crew enjoyed lunch on the deck over the mill pond.

Look for the movie to be released in December of 2008, yes, 08 - it takes a long time to put these things together!
