Bayside residents may recognize some familiar neighborhood locales in an upcoming film starring New York-native Billy Crystal.

On Nov. 16, crew members and equipment vans could be seen outside of the Celtic Cove pub at 29th Avenue and Francis Lewis Boulevard. Scenes for “We Are Unsatisfied,” a comedy also starring Ben Schwartz, were being shot within the bar behind the cover of black tarps.

Crew for the movie will also film scenes at 35th Avenue and 212th Street on Sunday, Nov. 19, according to posted signage.

No parking restrictions will be in effect on both sides of 212th Street between 35th and 36th Avenues beginning at 10 p.m. on Nov. 18 to accommodate the filming.


“We Are Unsatisfied” is about a struggling L.A. comedian (played by Schwartz) who’s forced to move back home to eastern Long Island, where he find a connection with his alcoholic dermatologist (Crystal), according to reports.

The movie will also star Grace Gummer, Kevin Dunn, Debra Monk and Jill Hennessy. It is directed by Matt Ratner and written by Peter Hoare.

Filming for the movie began earlier this month. A release date has not yet been announced.
