BEING THERE: Bruce Almighty @ PFF


Last night Bruce Willis was in town to receive the Philadelphia Film Festival’s second annual Lumière Award, which is bestowed on “those that have demonstrated a passion for the furtherance of filmmaking as a vital artform and growing industry in Philadelphia,” according to the PFF web site. Willis has appeared in four movies shot in Philadelphia: Twelve Monkeys, The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Glass — the latter three directed by M. Nigh Shamylan, who presented the award to Willis. The two are currently shooting Glass, which is the final film in a superhero trilogy that began with Unbreakable in 2000, the second installment was last year’s Split. For the next few weeks they will be filming scenes from Glass at the ominous Allentown State Hospital, an hour outside the city. — EVAN HUNDELT
