Several feature films are being made in the Clear Lake Area and one of the most recent is called The Pizza Joint Movie. In October, Main Street (formerly 2nd Street) in Seabrook was shut down for an afternoon of filming and shop owners were delighted with all the hustle and watching the making of this movie. New shop owner of Back Bay Boutique, Lisa Maxsen Findlea had a different day of retail, helping out and sharing her location for the movie, “I had an exciting day, and the crew and cast were fun!” said Lisa. The crew stated that she was the most accommodating merchant and they really enjoyed hanging out in Seabrook.
