HOLLYWOOD COMES TO SILVERMINE
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

The Tavern parking lot was packed
with trucks for makeup and hair, costumes, catering, and
trailers for star dressing rooms.
This Dodge from the 1950s was
filmed outside of the house to set the period.
The house being used as the set for
the filming was just up the street from the Tavern.
The oldest house in Silvermine was
turned into a film set for the movie Revolutionary Road
When you go to see the movie, look
for this "cake" in the scene. Here its being approved
by the props crew.
