Tea Garden Mystery Solved!

A reader cleared up the mysterious renovation going on at the historic Tea Garden, in back of the Forest Hills Inn. I'm told it is for a movie shoot there starting Tuesday about legendary film director Stanley Kubrick. They have transformed the Tea Garden into Oktoberfest in 1957 Munich, Germany for the shoot. Here are some photos. I'm working on getting the name of the movie, but so far no luck. If anyone knows, please let me know (Kubrick was/is one of my favorite all-time directors, so I'm quite excited about this!)


  1. They cleaned up this space a couple of years ago when they shot Myra Breckenridge here too. A few months later it was back to being a mess.

    It's a shame that this is just for a movie shoot as the area will fall back in to disarray once they are done shooting.

    Such a lovely spot for something spectacular.

    1. You mean the HBO miniseries "Mildred Pierce". "Myra Breckenridge" was made in 1969 and filmed entirely in LA.

    2. You're correct ... my bad. It was Mildred Pierce with Kate Winslet.

  2. They are filing now.

  3. I ran over to the station to pick up my brother-in-law and they made me turn at Bye to take Burns to the Station
