There were multiple shots filmed outside and inside the pub on East Superior Street during the summer.

So set crews, of course, did their magic to make it look like the heart of winter with fake snow, wet streets and special effects during the editing process to create snowflakes falling from the sky.

Carmody’s owner, Eddie Gleeson, told FOX 21 he was honored to open his pub for the Hulu movie. He said he hopes the positive experience the actors and production crew had will entice other productions filmed here in the future.

It’s employed a lot of creative people. They poured a lot of money into this economy, and we need that here.”

Gleeson said the exposure his pub is getting has been great with visitors recognizing his establishment from the movie, which he hopes continues into the summer tourism season.

“I opened my door, unlocked it on a Saturday and a family stopped in front and said that’s the place in the movie,” Gleeson said.
