The Eastsider L.A. reports that Echo Park institution Brite Spot has been closed for several days while a new film called Stand Up Guys is being shot there. The filming has inundated the neighborhood with sightings of the film’s two stars, Christopher Walken and Al Pacino, with the actors spotted cruising back and forth on Sunset. As one surprised commenter notes, “I saw [Pacino] from Pazzo Gelato over my bagel.” Now how do we get him to say hello to Cafe con Leche? [ELA]
