‘Mixtape’ is a family comedy film that follows 12-year-old Beverly Moody, who discovers a long-lost connection to her parents when she finds a mixtape. An orphan since the age of two, the young girl and her friends embark on a quirky adventure to track down all the songs from the tape, and in the process, discover new aspects about themselves.
The quaint suburban backdrop of the musical comedy is perfect for young Beverly and her friends to go on their adventure and is comically contrasted with the rock-and-roll music that her parents left for her. If you’re wondering where ‘Mixtape’ was filmed and brought to life, we’ve got the story!
Mixtape Filming Locations
‘Mixtape’ is set in a city in Washington but was filmed entirely in British Columbia. A few scenes were seemingly shot in New York as well. Initially scheduled to begin filming in 2020, the production was shut down in three weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Principal photography then started around February 8, 2021, amid stringent safety protocols and wrapped up by early April of the same year. Here are the specific locations that were used for filming.
Vancouver, British Columbia
The filming of ‘Mixtape’ extensively took place across multiple locations in Vancouver, located in the Lower Mainland region of the westernmost province of British Columbia. Some on-location filming was also seemingly done in a residential neighborhood of the city.
Scenes depicting the Greenwood haunted staircase (which actually exists in Spokane, Washington) were also likely shot on location around the city.
Burnaby, British Columbia
The production team also spent time filming across a few spots in Burnaby. Scenes depicting Beverly’s road trip with her friends and a reluctant Anti were possibly shot on location in Burnaby, as well as shots of Beverly’s school and the record store. Some on-set filming could also have been carried out at Burnaby’s world-famous Bridge Studios at 2400 Boundary Road.
New York City, New York
A few scenes were seemingly filmed in New York City, which is known for its iconic urban backdrop. The production crew likely shot on-location near downtown New York, though the film doesn’t feature any of the immediately recognizable landmarks of the Big Apple.
