Miramax filming in Lynn Woods
From the Friends of Lynn Woods: As many of you already know Miramax is filming near the Pennybrook lot in the Lynn Woods. The movie is called Mother/Android, Google it for more information. The production will ramp up over the next couple of days so please park in the Great Woods lot if possible.
The Friends of Lynn Woods will receive a significant donation for the woods maintenance fund. This money is used for maps, paint, tools and everything else the park needs to function. Most of the filming will be around Dungeon Rock, Waycross Road and Lantern Rock.
Please try to avoid these areas so they can complete their work as quickly as possible.
