Movie Filmed In Laurelhurst Coming Out In Theaters Today

A reader sent us email wanted to share with the neighborhood that the movie that was filmed last May on the 3900 block of 47th Avenue NE block is coming out in theatres today.

The movie, “Safety Not Guaranteed” already received acclaimed reviews at the Sundance Film Festival in January and great applause at the Seattle International Film Festival last month. 

It is a low budget comedy film about two magazine employees who interview a guy who placed a classified ad seeking a companion for time travel and starrs Aubrey Plaza from the TV show, "Parks and Recreation, " Mark Duplass, Jake Johnson and Kristin Bell who starred in "Couples Retreat."

The production, filmed entirely in Washington State,  prominently features the Laurelhurst house and street scenes, along with other Seattle and Washington State locations. 

Dave Drummond, Location Manager, circulated a letter last spring to affected neighbors saying "We sincererely appreciate the opportunity to film in Laurelhurst ."
