West Hartford went through a Hollywood-like temporary transformation in December 2011 when a portion of West Hartford Center became the set for filming the movie "Pawn."
Many scenes from the movie, which stars Forest Whitaker, Ray Liotta, Michael Chiklis, and Nikki Reed, were shot at the former Friendly's Restaurant on South Main Street, which was transformed into the "Be Brite Diner."
Last week, that site became home to Sweet Frog Frozen Yogurt.
West Hartford is prominently featured in the trailer, which also includes cameo appearances by West Hartford Police's SWAT team who were volunteer extras in the film.
According to FilmoFelia, there is not yet a release date for the film, but if you watch the trailer by clicking here, you will likely see some familiar people and places! Warning: the trailer uses some pretty strong language!
