"The Next Three Days"

Last night we watched the thriller found in the subject line. It was a pretty good flick starring Russell Crowe as a husband trying to break his wife out of prison. The film was shot mostly in Pittsburgh. With AC going on this weekend and my previous post fresh in my head, it was kinda nice seeing the David L Lawrence Convention Center in the background of one scene filmed in the backyard of a house across the river and about halfway up the hill. As I have mentioned many times before, it's the location of the Convention Center that make the con so worthwhile IMHO. Seeing the city gave my brain a little push that I really should try to attend the con again. If nothing else I need to get to the Pittsburgh Zoo to see the awesome polar bear exhibit where they also filmed a scene.
