A new film, Nowhere Ever After is being filmed on Liberty Street. It has been creating a lot of excitement for businesses that will be used, like the Wherehouse and Jenny’s Floral Designs, which will be transformed into the Rome College Bookstore. The film is staring Melanie Lynskey (Rose from Two and a Half Men) and Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette from True Blood).
Almost three years ago, I attended a meeting that discussed how Newburgh could attract the film industry to the city. Since then, quite a few productions have been filmed in Newburgh, especially at Umbra Soundstage which has one of the few airplane stages north of New York City.
