‘The Judge’ Opens Tonight; Catch Belmont’s Fleeting Moments on the Silver Screen

Belmont’s fleeting moments of fame on the silver screen will take place today, Friday, Oct. 10, with the release of “The Judge,” the Hollywood motion picture that spent a couple of days last year in “The Town of Homes.”

The film stars Robert Downey Jr. as a big city attorney who returns to his Indiana childhood home where his father, Robert Duvall, the town’s judge, is suspected of murder. Downey sets out to discover the truth and, along the way, reconnects with his estranged family.

The movie – the first effort by the production company run by Downey and his wife, Susan – also stars Vera Farmiga, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ken Howard,  and the always great Billy Bob Thornton

The scene filmed in Belmont was inside a Fletcher Road house in early July 2013. Most of the film’s scenes were shot in western Massachusetts.

The movie is being shown at Apple Cinemas Cambridge in the Fresh Pond Mall, the Capitol Theatre on Mass. Avenue in Arlington and the Embassy Cinema in downtown Waltham.
