The parking lot at Mom’s (2036 Shields Rd) was unusually empty at breakfast time on Friday morning (circa 9:30). Big rental moving trucks were out back (along Eustace). According to a security guard on Shields, the “Elsewhere” movie shoot is located at Mom’s Cafe on Friday.
Mom’s Cafe will be closed on Friday, and re-opens for regular business (and incredibly delicious pies) on Saturday, September 16, 2017
You’ve probably heard that “Elsewhere,” a Hollywood comedy drama indie movie, is being shot in Sooke over the next few weeks.
The movie features stars like Parker Posey and Ken Jeong, and apparently these two have had the great privilege of meeting a number of Sookies. Other marquee names include Beau Bridges, Jacki Weaver and Jackie Tohn, but they don’t appear to be in town.

Since you’re here, we have a small favour to ask.
At 1.7 million page views over the past year, more people than ever are reading SPN. We had hoped advertising local services and events would sustain this service, but that has not come to pass. Advertising revenues are falling; status quo is unsustainable. Readers, please consider a small monthly donation. This can help secure the future of SPN. Business owners: Please consider an ad. More than massive local exposure, you will also be affiliated with an independent business that is 100% local, 99% paperless, and highly valued by the 98%. That’s priceless.
Thank you for your continued readership.
