Gallery: Kong in Chinatown

Driving through downtown this week, I was suddenly and briefly transported to Saigon circa 1971. It turns out about a block of Chinatown near Kekaulike Market was a filming location for “Kong: Skull Island,” a big-budget monster movie due out in 2017. It instantly reminded me of the hours I spent...

“LOST” for the Holidays

“LOST” for the Holidays

SPOILER ALERT: Today is the last day of “LOST” production for the year, with most of the cast and crew taking a break until Jan. 10, 2010. Most of this week, they were working at Police Beach on the North Shore, but there were a few location shoots closer to...

“LOST” Underway

“LOST” Underway

SPOILER ALERT: This morning, local blogger Vernon Brown was attending a shipmate’s re-enlistment ceremony at Pearl Harbor when he spotted the “LOST” crew setting up for a shoot. He posted the news to Twitter, along with a few pictures. Meanwhile, long-time lostspotter Eric, who works at Pearl Harbor, sent in...

“LOST” on Location

“LOST” on Location

SPOILER ALERT: Times are good for local “LOST” fans, particularly with the full-day “Celebration of ‘LOST’” at the Hawaii International Film Festival on Saturday. Of course, production didn’t stop, and I was also able to check out a few location shoots over the past week. Not surprisingly, the crew continued...

“LOST” in the Neighborhood

“LOST” in the Neighborhood

SPOILER ALERT (Updated 3:12 p.m. HST): Breathless word comes from Carrie of a recent “LOST” shoot in Kahala. Less than a block from the home where Hurley hid in Season 5, she found her neighborhood once again packed with trailers and trucks before sunrise. Fortunately for us, she blew off...

‘LOST’ Scene Report

‘LOST’ Scene Report

SPOILER ALERT: The “LOST” production crew has kept largely out of sight this week. But a couple of reports have come in from the location shoot reported on Tuesday (and at right, one of a couple of photos captured by my friend Vernon Brown). Thanks to Eric and K.C., we...

‘LOST’ On Arrival

‘LOST’ On Arrival

SPOILER ALERT! After a long holiday weekend (capping off a long week of late-night shoots), the “LOST” crew was out and about early this morning. The news came courtesy former coworkers whose parking lot was commandeered as the production’s base camp.

“LOST” Confrontation

“LOST” Confrontation

SPOILER ALERT: “LOST” filmed late into the night and continued work today in West O’ahu (as reported yesterday). And “LOST” fans from afar — New York and Brazil — were able to get relatively close to the action as a scene unfolded at Jacob’s beach temple. The following is a composite of...

“LOST” Update

“LOST” Update

SPOILER ALERT: Filming for the sixth and final season of “LOST” began on Monday, but most of the lensing so far has taken place at the Hawaii Film Studio on Diamond Head. But today, thanks to visiting “LOST” fan, blogger and podcaster “TheODI” and film industry watcher Tim Ryan, there’s...

“LOST” in the Harbor

“LOST” in the Harbor

SPOILER ALERT! As we lament the end of production for “Season 5” this week, here’s a blast from the recent past. Though Jen and I reported this “LOST” shoot on our March 22 podcast, our intrepid spotter on the scene, Roxy, has just sent along photos from the set. Click...

Scenes from a Season Finale

Scenes from a Season Finale

SPOILER ALERT! While only the tenth episode of “LOST” just aired on Wednesday, production is already wrapping up on the season here in Honolulu. That means that it’s been an especially exciting week for LOST spotters, who’ve caught the crew putting together scenes that will appear in the season finale. ...

“LOST” on the North Shore

“LOST” on the North Shore

SPOILER ALERT! Filming for the penultimate season of “LOST” is nearing an end, with about a month left of production to shoot the last two episodes. Location shoots tend to dwindle as the season finale nears, so I’m glad for any tidbit that surfaces these days. Fortunately, thanks to a...

“LOST” in a Market

“LOST” in a Market

Looks like the winter “LOST” production hiatus is over. Filming for Episode 12 of Season 5 commenced yesterday, and late word came of a location shoot at the Times Supermarket in McCully (1772 S. King St.). Out front, a false sign hung that no doubt gave local shoppers pause: Tim’s...

“LOST” in Pictures

“LOST” in Pictures

A little over a week ago, I posted some “LOST” spotting notes from fans who were visiting Hawaii. Among them was a report from Crista, who spent some time wandering “Othersville” (a.k.a. Camp Erdman). Fortunately, she was also able to take some photos, which she was kind enough to share:...

“LOST” Notes from Visiting Fans

“LOST” Notes from Visiting Fans

SPOILER ALERT! This past week was definitely a good week to be a “LOST” fan vacationing in Hawaii. The Othersville set report from Grant was only the beginning.  Less than a day later, I heard from Crista, who stopped by Camp Erdman as well. There was no filming taking place,...

“LOST” on Saturday

“LOST” on Saturday

SPOILER ALERT! “LOST” was filming today — a Saturday — a sure sign the traditional winter break is drawing near. Today, they set up in Kakaako, taking over the long-unused parking lot of the former CompUSA store on Ala Moana Boulevard, and staging a car crash a few blocks away...

“LOST” Among the Tombstones

“LOST” Among the Tombstones

SPOILER ALERT! “LOST” returned to Oahu Cemetery this morning, perhaps a fitting location on the brink of Halloween. The historic graveyard previously appeared in the Season 2 episode “Lockdown,” as the not-quite-final resting place of Anthony Cooper. It seemed, at first, a peaceful scene, with Matthew Abbadon (Lance Reddick) bringing a wheelchair-bound John...

“LOST” Returns to Santa Rosa

“LOST” Returns to Santa Rosa

SPOILER ALERT! “LOST” returned to the campus of Windward Community College in Kaneohe today to film yet another scene at the “Santa Rosa Mental Institute,” where our dear Hurley (Jorge Garcia) has been a tenant. From veteran spotter “Grappler” (who previously reported from the Windward side) comes this account of...

“LOST” in Kaimuki

It was a late night for “LOST” at Sacred Heart Academy in Kaimuki. “LOST” spotter Joel posted a couple of photos and sent Hawaii Blog this report from the scene: “They had a massive set of lights set up and Ben, Desmond and a woman were in the scene (I...

“LOST” in Long Beach

SPOILER ALERT! The Waikiki Yacht Club was transformed into the “Long Beach Harbor Club” for evening shoots last night and tonight. Cranes and production trucks were parked nearby, as well as three notable vehicles: the blue Canton-Rainier Carpet Cleaning van, Kate’s silver Volvo, and a silver Jaguar S-Class. My friend...
