Dockers Closes For Filming On Monday Afternoon


Film production crews were at Dockers Waterside Restaurant and Marina on Dune Road in East Quogue on Monday afternoon shooting scenes for 20th Century Fox’s “The Other Woman,” a comedy starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton.

The restaurant opened for lunch Monday and closed at around 3 p.m. to accommodate the crews, which set up in the parking lot. Larry Hoffman, the owner of the business, said they were filming near the marina that overlooks the bay, and he said they expected to finish that evening.

“It’s an exciting thing for us,” Mr. Hoffman said. “It’s just another reason why our location is fabulous.”

Mr. Hoffman, who declined to say whether he was being compensated for use of his business, explained that the crews began arriving at 6 a.m. to prepare for their 5 p.m. start time. “I’m amazed at how much goes into it,” he said.

Southampton Town Police officers were on hand a few hundred feet east of Dockers while the crews filmed scenes at a private ocean-side home also on Monday.

Chris Bean, the superintendent of the Southampton Town Parks and Recreation Department, said the company was not required to apply for a permit since they were filming on private property. The crews obtained permits to film on the public beaches in Quogue and East Quogue last month.
