Onlookers were interested in what was happening on Pandosy Street this afternoon as lights, cameras, and actors were on scene of the Marmalade Cat Cafe.

Love in Romance, Oregon, produced by CMW Spring Productions Inc., will eventually air on the W Network, said a crew member at the scene.

She said crews will be filming at various locations in Kelowna this week. The made-for-TV movie is directed by Danny J. Boyle, according to Creative BC’s website.

Today’s set, July 2, turned the Marmalade Cat Cafe on Pandosy Street into “Celeste’s Place” for the shoot.

The Marmalade Cat Cafe was turned into a video shoot July 2 for an upcoming made-for-TV movie.

The easing of COVID-19 restrictions has been great for the film industry, and there’s employment opportunities in the industry as more companies shoot in Kelowna, she said.

Over the past year, a variety of made-for-TV movies have been filmed in the Central Okanagan, from For Better or for Worse, a made-for-TV romance that was filmed in West Kelowna, to Vintage Hearts in Kelowna’s downtown.

In June, WorkSafeBC gave B.C.'s film industry the green-light to continue shoots, with some guidelines and restrictions in place.
