Yesterday the adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 dystopian novel, The Handmaid’s Tale, premiered in Canada on Bravo. There was one scene in episode 1 that prominently featured Downtown Cambridge, Mill Race Park in Galt. I don’t want to spoil anything in the episode, but here’s a few beautiful shots of our fair City. The shots feature Elizabeth Moss(Mad Men) and Alexis Bledel(Gilmore Girls) walking along the public walkways along the Grand River. The shots look gorgeous and definitely show why Cambridge is becoming a hot destination for many Hollywood productions.
As a forewarning, some of these photos do contain spoilers. I’m updating this post as the show airs in Canada, so I’ve been trying to highlight the parts shot in Cambridge without giving too much away.

These scenes definitely come off beautifully on screen. It’s pretty cool seeing Cambridge Ontario through the glossy lens of a big production, complete with recognizable Hollywood stars.

Update: Found this cool behind the scenes video of shooting from October 2016. Beware there may be some spoilers in this one, so consider yourself warned.
