Although the “Three Stooges” movie isn’t officially set here (or anywhere), it’ll be clear to the audience that the movie was filmed in Atlanta.
The Farrelly Brothers comedy opens today and stars Sean Hayes, Will Sasso and Chris Diamantopoulos as Larry, Curly and Moe; along with Jennifer Hudson, Jane Lynch and Larry David as nuns and Sofía Vergara as the evil beauty who crosses paths with the Stooges.
Scenes at the orphanage where Larry, Curly and Moe grew up were filmed at a private estate in the Cartersville area, but many of the interior orphanage scenes actually were filmed on sets that were built at the Atlanta Civic Center. You’ll be able to spot the Equitable Building and the 191 Peachtree Building.
Some outdoor scenes were filmed at Piedmont Park, street scenes are obviously downtown Atlanta (with some super product placement for local beverage company Whynatte) and scenes set at a zoo were filmed at Stone Mountain Park. Party scenes were filmed at the Buckhead home
