No one in the Boston area will ever forget the events of April 19, 2013 in Watertown.
Now those events are being reenacted three years later. The Mark Wahlberg feature film Patriots Day, which will follow the events surrounding the Boston Marathon bombings, shot scenes in Framingham this week. Filmmakers used the Boston area neighborhood to represent Watertown, filming a recreation of the apprehension of convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on April 19, 2013.
Here, lighting equipment was set up behind a house on Harrison Street in Framingham on Thursday night in preparation for filming the arrest scene.
Actors in tactical gear could be seen on top of a garage behind a house on Harrison Street.
