“It was very, very exciting,” Farnsworth said.
Farnsworth said the moviemakers discovered Marino’s Cafe because one of the guys on the camera crew came there to get his coffee when they were shooting in the area.
“They said, ‘It’s such a cool space, we’d like to use it in our movie,’” Farnsworth said.
The owners were reimbursed for their daily sales while the cafe was closed during the shooting and were also paid as “site representatives.”
“They were very, very generous, and it was so fun having them here,” Farnsworth said.
Carrol Sylvanowicz received an appropriate send-off at his funeral recently.
Sylvanowicz, a Beverly resident who died in a motorcycle accident last month, was escorted to his final resting place by 25 Harley motorcycles.
Sylvanowicz, 66, was a member of the Seacoast H.O.G. (Harley Owners Group) chapter.
Beverly resident Joe Amore, who took Sylvanowicz on his first ride seven years ago, led the procession wearing Sylvanowicz’s hat and with his H.O.G. vest on his windshield and riding jacket on his backrest.
“Our family would like to thank Joe Amore, the Seacoast H.O.G. Chapter, and all who participated in the memorial rides and procession, for their solidarity in honoring their fallen friend,” said Michelle Sylvanowicz, Carrol’s daughter.
