An­other brush with film fame for Llan­erch Diner?

Driv­ers sit­ting in traf­fic on Town­ship Line Road at West Ch­ester Pike couldn’t help but no­tice the video pro­duc­tion crews work­ing at the Llan­erch Diner Sun­day and Mon­day.

“What are they film­ing?” a man yelled as he sat at the traf­fic light.

Alas, the two dozen crew mem­bers milling around the park­ing lot were mum on who and what was tak­ing place at the diner, which be­came fa­mous from the scene in the movie “Sil­ver Lin­ings Play­book” when Jen­nifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper ate in one of its booths.

Flood lights and film equip­ment filled the park­ing lot Mon­day as ac­tors could be seen mov­ing about the diner, in­clud­ing sit­ting in the booth used by the “Sil­ver Lin­ings” stars which has since been marked with a spe­cial plac­ard and has at­tracted fans from around the world.

Cooper played Pat So­la­tano in the move. Lawrence was his love in­ter­est and won an Os­car for her work. Robert De Niro was his Ea­gle­sob­sessed fa­ther. The movie filmed scenes at sev­eral lo­ca­tions in the county.

“We saw the booth,” said An­drea Lloyd of Haver­town, who walked over with her son Mon­day af­ter­noon hop­ing to see a movie star but had no luck, “They won’t tell us any­thing,” she said.

A se­cu­rity guard urged pedes­tri­ans to keep mov­ing as crews set a large screen and flood­light in front of the diner.

Em­ploy­ees at Rapco Car Re­pair next door were told crews would be film­ing a com­mer­cial but had no other in­for­ma­tion

“Ev­ery­thing is so se­cre­tive,” said Shawna Hil­ton, a wait­ress at the diner for 15 years who was seen leav­ing the res­tau­rant. She did add, “There is a foot­ball player there.”

A July 2017 kitchen fire closed the iconic Delaware County land­mark for months. It re-opened in Jan­uary.
