Interesting (possibly) note on "The Father of the Bride" showing at the Central Library next Wednesday:

Steve Martin's character owned a business. Shots of that business were filmed inside the brick building at the NE corner of S. Arroyo Parkway and E. Bellevue Drive in Pasadena.

Yes, all of the films in this month's series have scenes that were shot in Pasadena: "Seabiscuit," "Catch Me If You Can," "Father of the Bride" and "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid."

Next month's film series will have love themes in tribute to Valentine's Day.
