Not everyone is psyched about the upcoming Quentin Tarantino film on the Manson Family murders starring Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. Residents in the Hollywood hood where the film is shooting are finding themselves S.O.L. when it comes to parking.
We’re told that production for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” has shut down part of Sunset Blvd, along with several side streets in the area, and it’s become a miserable parking situation for some local residents.
Film LA, an organization that helps filmmakers obtain shooting permits and acts as a liaison between the film and the public, tells The Blast that their office has received a handful of complaints “from concerned residents” about the film.
We spoke with several people in the area who say they are “pissed” about the inconvenience. “Too much, it’s too much,” one man said about the production.
The film has also taken over a few historic locales and neighborhoods in Los Angeles and turned back the clock to give them a vintage vibe.
A Hollywood resident said that all the street parking in his area has been made “tow only” for over a week and he’s been forced to pay for parking elsewhere. A woman who lives in the area claims the street closures are making it nearly impossible to get to her apartment.
We’re told that one woman with mobility issues, who contacted Film LA, had difficulty getting access to their apartment building and needed to coordinate with the production team for assistance.
Shooting should wrap on the impacted streets soon, and we’re told that in the meantime, “the production company was working with those affected on parking access.”
The movie is scheduled to premiere next summer, just make sure you find good parking at the theater.
