It's Show Time, Folks
A big thank you to two readers who shared their photos of Transformers 4 star Mark Wahlberg. M.L. and C.O., we appreciate it! Click on the photos for slightly larger versions.
According to the Tribune: "The Uptown Theatre, where actors Mark Wahlberg and T.J. Miller filmed indoors Wednesday, was decorated with posters that read “SXSW Music Fest Jun 8, 2002.” (South By Southwest is the annual music festival that takes place in Austin, Texas.)
On one side of the Uptown Theatre was a fake liquor store called “Star of Texas Liquor & Wine.” On the other side was Crew Bar & Grill, which was open during filming but decorated with the Texas state flag and the University of Texas Longhorns flag.
The public was unable to go inside the Uptown Theatre during filming, but a security guard described the scene indoors as “dusty.”
[...] When he wasn’t filming, Wahlberg could be seen sitting on a cooler in front of the Uptown Theatre’s entrance."
Filming will continue on Thursday.
Update: The Trib has a very short video with Mark Wahlberg and T.J. Miller here.
