When Hollywood Came to Ballston Spa: Filming “The Way We Were”

BALLSTON SPA — In the fall of 1972, a production crew took over Front Street to film some scenes for the movie “The Way We Were,” which was set in the 1930s. Robert Redford and Barbra Streisand--and some “extras” were played by local residents.

Learn about this event, the excitement it generated and how it impacted the community at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 10.

The gathering - free and open to the public - includes a talk by local historian David Fiske (author of Ballston Spa History Walkaround), and a walk up to Front St. to see and hear about the two locations that appeared on screen. 

Event begins at The Real McCoy at Ballston Spa, located at 28 Washington St.
