Before Hollywood film crews for Nightmare Alley were in Buffalo with Bradley Cooper and Guillermo del Toro in early 2020, actor and film director John Krasinski was in Western New York filming the sequel to his monster horror-thriller, A Quiet Place.

Filmed in Western New York during the summer of 2019, A Quiet Place: Part II was originally supposed to be released to theaters in March of 2020...but the COVID-19 pandemic pushed back the release date a few times, until they settled on a September of 2021 release a few weeks ago.

However, they have decided to release it much earlier than September, and it’ll be shown right here in Western New York at the Transit Drive-In!

According to WKBWA Quiet Place: Part II will be shown at the Transit Drive-In starting in May 28th!

The movie stars Emily Blunt and features her real-life husband and director John Krasinski.

Some of the locations in Western New York that were used in the movie were Akron, Buffalo, Dunkirk, Grand Island, North Tonawanda and Olcott.

It’s so cool that a huge Hollywood movie like this was filmed in Western New York. The first installment of A Quiet Place was phenomenal. It’s one of those horror-type movies that non-horror fans would enjoy, just because it’s so different and relies on suspense, rather than stereotypical horror tactics. I also love Krasinki’s work, and yes, that includes his role of Jim Halpert on The Office.
