Lawrence Memorial Hospital making movie magic
By Theo Hayes on January 19, 2012
LAWRENCE - Scenes from ‘The Sublime and Beautiful’ are being filmed inside Lawrence Memorial Hospital.
The movie is about a drunk driver who kills a family’s children during a car accident. What follows is the actor’s descent and their eventual steps toward healing. The movie is the brainchild of Blake Robbins who is best known for his role as Tom Halpert in NBC’s “The Office.” Robbins is the writer and director of the movie and says standing on the other side of the lens for the first time is a dream come true.
“I’m standing in a blessed moment right now, my dream is coming true and its turning out better than I’ve ever conceived,” said Robbins. Robbins chose Lawrence to shoot the movie because he fell in love with the town several years ago when he worked on the movie “Bunker Hill.”
The movie will likely be out by winter of 2013; and several sites in Lawrence, including the hospital, the cemetery, Buffalo Bob’s and The Java Break, are in the movie.
