Via Jake’s comment on an earlier post I learned that the movie Mr. Destiny was filmed right here in Winston-Salem. In a follow up email he informed me that Jim Belushi’s high school baseball team in the movie was played by the Mt. Tabor high school team at the time and the opposing team was played by RJ Reynolds’ team. I checked out the movie’s listing on IMDB and found the following locations listed for filming:
- Biltmore Estate, 1 Approach Rd., Asheville
- Ernie Shore Field, 401 Deacon Blvd., Winston-Salem
- Graylyn Conference Center, 1900 Reynolda Rd., Winston-Salem
- Grecian Corner, 101 Eden Terrace, Winston-Salem
I think I’m gonna have to rent it just to look for the landmarks.
