I was reading my hometown paper today and saw this bar — aka The Bar — a site used by Ben Affleck and crew while in town last fall, filming GONE GIRL.
“The Bar, at 117 Themis St., is set to open in early October to coincide with the movie’s release Oct. 3. The owner also has unspecified plans for other downtown properties he has acquired. Before becoming The Bar for the 20th Century Fox feature film, the building was the home of Social’s Cafe and Catering. It was transformed in August into a bar that “Gone Girl” character Nick Dunne owns with his sister, Margo.”
A question for my Cape Girardeau Crew: Is this where Froggy’s used to be, back in the day when we were dancing to Billy Ocean’s “Caribbean Queen” and Prince’s “Erotic City”?
And if you haven’t seen the latest trailer for GONE GIRL …. is the site by the water at Trail of Tears?
