SOUTH SHORE — HBO Max’s post-apocalyptic limited series “Station Eleven” has filmed in Hyde Park and South Shore in recent weeks.
From Jan. 24-25, scenes for the show were filmed on Lake Park Avenue, between 56th and 57th Streets; 57th Street, between Blackstone Avenue and Lake Park Avenue; and Stony Island Avenue, between 56th and 57th Streets, according to Ald. Leslie Hairston (5th).
On Jan. 28, the Jeffery Plaza parking lot was closed to cars much of the day. The Chicago Film Office confirmed Station Eleven received permits to film along 71st Street near the shopping center this past week.
“However, Jeffery Plaza is a private business plaza and we do not review location agreements between private entities,” the film office said.
Two weeks earlier, on Jan. 14, the Local Market in Jeffery Plaza closed at 2 p.m. due to filming taking place inside. The film office did not clarify if this was also for Station Eleven.
Hairston said in a Facebook post the store was closed due to HBO filming a documentary. Hairston’s spokesperson Delmarie Cobb said the alderwoman wasn’t clear on the details and directed further questions to Local Market owners Cezary and Eva Jakubowski.
A spokesperson for the Jakubowskis did not return a request for comment.
Station Eleven stars Mackenzie Davis and Himesh Patel and will run for 10 episodes. The show also filmed in Uptown Jan. 17, according to casting service Backstage.
