DESCRIPTION: In a world of explosions, shootouts, and blue collar existential angst, Boston outlaw Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) is torn between love and money as he plans his next big bank heist in The Town. And spoiler alert: He gets a little blood on his track suit. Explosions. Shootouts. Blue collar existential angst. Sounds like a typical Boston bank heist. In The Town, outlaw Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) and his pals make a run for it over the Charlestown Bridge which spans the Charles River and connects the Charlestown and North End neighborhoods of Boston. Opened in 1900, the bridge has been serving locals (and criminals) for over a century. Scroll down to see more film locations identifed from The Town.
