The movie “Tender Bar,” which director by George Clooney used Watertown locales to shoot some of the scenes, is now showing in movie theaters and is streaming online starting Jan. 7.

At least one part of town, the area near Bemis Park in West Watertown, was used in the film that stars Ben Affleck.

The movie is showing at the Kendall Square Cinema in Cambridge and at the Dedham Community Theater, but can also be streamed by subscribers of Amazon Prime.

The film is based on a memoir by J.R. Moehringer, and the screenplay is by William Monahan, who also wrote “The Departed.”

Also appearing in the film are Tye Sheridan, Lily Rabe and Christopher Lloyd.

  1. Have to wonder why if the story is about a kid growing up on Long Island, why it was filmed in Massachusetts? Time will tell on if it deserves the two and a half stars in reviews.

  2. Whoever rated this 2 1/2 stars was being stingy. The Tender Bar is one of the best movies of this or any year. Ben Affleck is at his best and deserving of an Oscar nod. The young boy is a joy to watch. The supporting cast, even in the smallest roles, has everyone’s back from beginning to end. And the story is a heart tugger. Who cares if they tried to make Watertown look like Manhasset, this movie will transport you to a very special place!
