M. Night Shyamalan has never forgotten his roots.
Growing up around Philadelphia, the famous filmmaker has made a point to make movies in the City of Brotherly Love. His latest, “Glass,” is no exception.
What is ‘Glass’ about?
The film is the final in Shyamalan’s reality-grounded superhero trilogy, which began with “Unbreakable” in 2000. That film was followed by 2016’s “Split.”
“Glass” follows three men who appear to have super powers. There’s the heroic, super strong and nearly impossible to kill David Dunn (played by Bruce Willis) and the insanely smart but easily hurt Elijah Price aka Mr. Glass (played by Samuel L. Jackson). Both of those characters were introduced in “Unbreakable.”
Joining them is the Horde, a group of different identities housed in the body of Kevin Wendell Crumb (played by James McAvoy). Among the identities is the fearsome Beast, who can alter Crumb’s form and perform animalistic feats of strength. Crumb was introduced in “Split,” where he had kidnapped three teenagers, including Casey Cooke (played by Anya Taylor-Joy). Cooke is the only one of Crumb’s victims who has ever escaped.
In “Glass” all three of the men are being treated in a mental institution by Dr. Ellie Staple (played by Sarah Paulson) who cautions them that their belief in their uniqueness could just be a delusion. But Mr. Glass has a plan, and staying in the mental institution isn’t part of it.
So where did it film?
The film was shot largely in Pennsylvania. With the exception of Allentown State Hospital, all of the locations on this list are in Philadelphia. Allentown State Hospital is, as one might suspect, in Allentown.
Here is where “Glass” filmed and how each setting is depicted in the film… or at least our best guess as to how each setting is depicted. We only saw the film once.
