Don’t Look Up
Directed by Adam McKay (“The Big Short” and “Succession”), this big-budget film from Netflix is about two low-level astronomers who must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching comet that will destroy planet earth.
The crew and actors, including top-billed stars Cate Blanchett, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tyler Perry, took over the hotel for three days, filming key scenes in many spaces: our restaurant, OAK Long Bar + Kitchen, a luxury suite, our back-of-house banquet kitchen, and exterior shots at our hotel entrances. Fairmont Copley Plaza played the part of a Washington D.C. hotel named The Buchanan.
Fun fact: production used OAK Long Bar + Kitchen’s own furniture and tableware to shoot an ‘end of the world’ looting plot point.
