Metro Vancouver, British Columbia
Many pivotal sequences for ‘The Midnight Club’ are lensed across Metro Vancouver AKA Greater Vancouver, a metropolitan area with Vancouver as its major urban center. In July 2021, the cast and crew members were spotted taping some important scenes for the debut season of the series in Ladner, a part of the city of Delta and a suburb of Vancouver. The filming unit was looking for a building with empty storefronts so they could entirely dress it the way they needed to. Ladner matched their requirements perfectly, especially after a fire broke out at the end of 2019, leaving many spaces vacant.
Ladner United Church at 4960 48 Avenue in Delta is one of the major filming sites for the series. The production team of ‘The Midnight Club’ also sets up camp on the Spanish Banks, a series of beaches in Vancouver along the shores of English Bay. Certain areas in the city of Surrey are also utilized for shooting a few scenes for the series. Moreover, they even reportedly recorded some sequences for the first season at a grocery store in Vancouver.
Burnaby, British Columbia
For shooting purposes, the filming unit of ‘The Midnight Club’ utilizes the locales of Burnaby, a city in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia. The Bridge Studios at 2400 Boundary Road serves as one of the prominent production locations for the mystery series. The studio facility consists of 13 sound stages that range from 4,500 to 18,000 square feet.
Moreover, there are several executive offices, meeting rooms, kitchens, and exterior green screen permanent rigging points, making the production complex a suitable filming site for different kinds of productions. In addition, Central Park at 3883 Imperial Street can also be spotted in some scenes throughout the series. The studio has also served as a filming site for ‘Yellowjackets,’ ‘Jurassic World Dominion,’ as well as Flanagan’s other shows ‘The Haunting of Hill House,’ ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’ and ‘The Midnight Mass.’
