Was just watching the episode titled "Voices Carry" from season 2 of the TV series The 4400, and what should jump out at me?
None other than The Nat, being used as a location for the opening act of the show.
The entire series has been shot in Vancouver, so you’ll often see scenes in and around places like the Art Gallery, Commercial Drive, Steveston Village, The Chan Centre at UBC, the Convocation Mall at SFU and the like, so it stands to reason that when an episode involves a minor league ballplayer who can hear what people are thinking, you’d look to The Nat for a backdrop.
If you’ve ever wondered what the Canadians locker rooms look like (or rather, used to look like), go rent Season Two, Disc One of The 4400 and all will be answered.
Oh, and no, this wasn’t the shoot that ripped up the infield grass several years ago - something the ballpark has still not recovered from.
Can you think of any other movies or TV shows that have used The Nat as a backdrop? Leave a comment.
