Rent Trailer

The trailer for Rent (via Trina) is online. Segements of Rent were shot on 6th Street, between Mission and Market, which is exactly where I live. For a week or two, movie busses, lights, and extras flooded the streets every night to shoot a couple of scenes. It you look in the trailer, all the New Year’s celebration scenes are from my neighbourhood. It’s pretty nutty. Club 6 became the Cat Scratch Club (?), 7th Street Haircutters became a mid 80s haircut place, some pawn shop becaome Crazy Eddie’s. It’s funny to think that to find grimy mid-80s NYC, the best location they found was the 6th area.
