Exit Stage Death Filming Locations
The movie ‘Exit Stage Death’ wrapped up filming in Canada on March 13, 2020, exactly a day before entertainment productions everywhere in Canada were shut down the next day due to the COVID-19 lock-down. Luckily, the production of this film was not affected too much by the pandemic. Here are the filming locations where ‘Exit Stage Death’ was shot.
Vancouver, British Columbia
Majorly, the third Picture Perfect Mysteries installment was filmed in and around the city of Vancouver in British Columbia. Some parts were also filmed in Surrey, BC. Although Surrey is another city in the British Columbia province, it comes under the greater metropolitan Vancouver area. Vancouver is also the filming location of the majority of American TV series and most of the biggest Hollywood films like ‘It’, ‘It: Chapter Two’, ‘The 100’, ‘Supernatural’, ‘The Vampire Diaries’, ‘Lucifer’, and ‘Once Upon A Time.’ among countless others.
Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada
The theatre scenes (where the murder takes place) were filmed at the ACT Centre in Maple Ridge, British Columbia. IMDB lists ‘Exit Stage Death’ as the only movie to be filmed in Maple Ridge so far, but the authenticity and accuracy of that statement is still doubtful.
Exit Stage Death Cast
The main cast of ‘Exit Stage Death’ (and its predecessors) is husband-wife duo Alexa and Carlos PenaVega. Alexa plays the insightful and smart Allie (wannabe Sherlock) and the charmer of a detective Sam Acosta is brought to life on screen by Alexa’s husband Carlos PenaVega. The real-life couple shares two little kids and has been together for many years now, having first met and fallen in love at a Bible study group.
