Get Christie Love film crew is coming to 36th Ave

Get_Christie

No-parking notices are up for a film crew set to arrive on 36th Avenue Tuesday night for Get Christie Love, an ABC reboot of a 1970s TV show. The original show is considered part of the blaxploition genre and is known as the first TV show starring an African American female lead.

36th Ave in Ravenswood gets plenty of film action. I’ve seen film crews here at least a few times in the last few years, including for Roxanne Roxanne, the biopic of the rapper who lived down the street at Queensbridge.

[UPDATE: Christie Love will be filming along 36th Avenue all the way from 12th Street to 24th Street, and apparently all day Wednesday.]
