The Baby Stealer Filming Locations
The couple moves from a big city to a suburban area before the birth of their first child. Naturally, it is quite a change to settle into a new place and a new neighborhood. But as far as filming was concerned, Ontario got the job done. Let us take you through the details of the filming locations!
Durham Region, Ontario
‘The Baby Stealer’ was filmed in different parts of southern Ontario, specifically the Durham Region and Toronto. The movie is shot in four different locations within Durham- Courtice, Whitby, Ajax, and Port Perry. Courtice is a community in Clarington, Ontario, for those who are unfamiliar with it.
It has previously served as a filming location for productions such as ‘The Proud Rider,’ ‘Deranged,’ ‘Bottle Up,’ and ‘Fantasy Realm.’ Several scenes were also filmed in the town of Whitby, which is a commuter suburb in the Greater Toronto Area. Whitby is on the shore of Lake Ontario and is known for its natural harbor. Ajax, like Whitby, is located on the shores of Lake Ontario.
The town started seeing considerable development in the 1980s when various malls and residential neighborhoods started to come up. Port Perry is a community in the town of Scugog and serves as its administrative and commercial center. The downtown area of Port Perry is a popular tourist destination for its Victorian-era feel with bookstores, restaurants, cafes, and antique shops. A few scenes of the film were shot here.
Toronto is the most populous city in Canada and also the biggest center of Hollywood North. In the film, some scenes were shot at the Gooderham Building, which is also known as the Flatiron Building.
