Woody Allen filming today in the former Force of Habit Records at 20th and Lexington

But it appears they haven’t altered the facade or signage. (Maybe they’re making the Braindead Dave Story.) Anybody get a look at the interior?

    They’re not using Force of Habit, actually. They’re filming interiors inside a friend’s apartment who lives in the area.

    I don’t know all of Braindead Dave’s story but I always thought the death of the Rocket Record store owner could make a good movie. Lurid sex, street drugs, death, and rock n’ roll http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Violent-End-To-Record-Store-Owner-s-Life-S-F-2902845.php

    The record store is no more, and the current owners are putting in a restaurant called 20 SPOT there. The filming is actually taking place in the apartment above the store and the exterior shots are being done at 14th and South Van Ness — I don’t think they’re using the facade of this building, and are just using the storefront for storage, prep, etc.

      Hmmm… I was trying to protect my friend’s privacy above by not naming the EXACT location, but I guess if Woody Allen’s filming a movie in your apartment you can’t expect too much privacy. :)

    It looked like they were using Gravel & Gold up the street as a staging area/dressing room, too. Unless that was something completely different.

    My apartment will finally get its 15 minutes of fame. But when will I?

    Wondering mostly how it went for my upstairs neighbor’s new sublettor, who was moving in today. ! That’s some Murphy’s Law action.

    This is why I had to take 17th street instead of 20th?!?!?!?

    Right on! Cheers!

  7. The lovely ladies at Gravel & Gold say a commercial (CA tourism something?) was being filmed there this morning, not the Woody Allen thing. The 300 block of Lexington was amazingly bookended by two different film crews.

    I moved in upstairs yesterday! All went well thankfully. By sheer luck I did push my move from 2pm to 7pm, to coincide with the end of the shoot. The crew hooked up my movers with a spot on Lex, and were awesome.

    Looking forward to meeting you, neighbor!
