Exterior shots for the Anthony Hopkins movie, The Rite, will be filmed in Blue Island on Thursday, October 21st. Filming will take place on Western Avenue (between 127th and Vermont) and on Maple Street (between Walnut and Union Streets). Traffic on these streets will be shut for short periods of time while preparation and filming take place. There will be no parking on these street (only cars provided by the studio). Unfortunately, no actors will be in town for this filming, but it will be fun to see Blue Island in the final film! We apologize for any inconvenience.
