An Astoria filmed movie was just featured at the Sundance Film Festival. “Sometimes I Think About Dying” stars Daisy Ridley of Star Wars fame.
Ridley says she loved filming in Astoria back in 2021, calling it just gorgeous. “I hit up every spot in Astoria,” Ridley said in the interview.” “I went to the maritime and film museums. I went to the ‘Goonies’ house and beach. Where we filmed the cinema scene, that is, I believe, the most haunted town in Oregon, and it was actually quite freaky. And then on the way out, I went for brunch with a few people in Portland."
Imagine you're in Astoria for the weekend and sidle up to the local pub bar and realize you're sitting next to a movie star! She said filming often ended early and she hit up local pubs.
