‘Black Mass’ Film Transforms Revere Beach into Miami Beach

Live palm tress were planted in the sand of Revere Beach to transform the beach into Miami Beach where a scene from the movie “Black Mass’’ will be filmed for the next several days. Crews used front-end loaders to transport the live trees to the beach, blocking off a section of the area where new cabana beach chairs were placed.

Revere Beach or Miami Beach — can you tell the difference?

The film based on the book “Black Mass,’’ featuring Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger, has transformed a portion of Revere Beach into a Floridian oasis, complete with palm trees, according to The Boston Globe.

John Tlumacki, a photographer for the newspaper, snapped a couple of pictures of the set which includes a pizza restaurant across the street that has been transformed into a Cuban cafe, dubbed “La Linterna.’’
