More Manchester Arrives in Marblehead
The House of Pizza is now Chelby's Pizza.
As each new scene is filmed for the Adam Sandler movie Grown Ups 2, it seems more and more local storefronts are getting Hollywood makeovers - some made to depict businesses in Manchester, N.H., one of Sandler's favorite hang-outs.
The latest is the Marblehead House of Pizza on Atlantic Avenue, which saw their signature logo replaced with a Chelby's Pizza sign Monday evening.
The shop was transformed so that a tire-rolling scene can be shot in the heart of town today and tomorrow. David Spade's character is supposed to roll through Marblehead in a giant tire before Shaquille O'Neal, who plays to the town cop, stops him.
Other local businesses that have gotten Grown Ups 2 touch-ups include Mud Puddle Toys, which became Manchester's Red Arrow Diner; Arnould Gallery and Framery and J. Martin Furnishings became Hermosa Boutique; and most recently Phillips & Lee Auto Service, which was turned into Kevin James' Lamansoff Auto Repair.
