Village of Greenwood Lake

Hollywood Comes to the Hudson Valley

The village of Greenwood Lake, New York (GWL) welcomed locals to a special red carpet premiere of Rob Reiner’s film “The Magic of Belle Isle.” The starring cast includes Hollywood icons Morgan Freeman and Virginia Madsen who took up residency in Greenwood Lake where the movie was filmed last summer. The special pre-screening allowed for the “Re-coming of age story” to be projected on a massive lakeside screen as a thank you to the community residents for their hospitality. Director Rob Reiner and Morgan Freeman sent a personalized preview to the film that documented their unforgettable experiences while shooting in GWL and showed immense gratitude and admiration for the most stunning enclave in the Hudson Valley.
