Queens College: Affordable for Students and Hollywood

Queens College Campus Event Services announced via email that the upcoming film "Still Alice" was partially filmed at QC.  It's unclear whether these scenes made the final cut, but it's a fun reminder that Queens College is affordable. For students, mostly, but apparently also for Hollywood!

Take that, Columbia University!  Queens College is the Vancouver to your Los Angeles!

From the Office of Campus Event Services:

Campus Event Services markets and coordinates space rentals at Queens College. In April 2014, the college was selected as a location for the film Still Alice (rated PG-13)starring Julianne Moore. The film was also shot at a home in Long Beach and other locations in the New York City area. The movie is based on Lisa Genova's novel by the same name about a Columbia linguistics professor who learns she has early-onset Alzheimer's disease. 

The following campus sites were used in the film:
Campbell Dome
Kiely Hall 258
Fifth-floor Rotunda window, Rosenthal Library
President's Conference Room 1, Rosenthal Library
Dean Craig Michael's office, Powdermaker Hall 100
Hallway in the Remsen Building

Should you choose to see the film, we hope you enjoy seeing the familiar QC locations!
