Park West Gallery Lands a Role in ‘The Giant Mechanical Man’ Starring Jenna Fischer

The Giant Mechanical Man, Park West GalleryUpcoming romantic comedy features metro Detroit’s top-rated fine art gallery

Park West Gallery’s 63,000-square-foot headquarters in Southfield, Michigan is featured in the upcoming offbeat romantic comedy “The Giant Mechanical Man.” The movie co-stars Jenna Fischer, best known as Pam from the NBC hit comedy “The Office,” and Topher Grace, star of “Spiderman 3” and “That ‘70s Show.”

Fischer and her co-stars were filmed on set at Park West Gallery on Saturday, December 4, 2010. Location scouts for New York-based Taggart Productions chose Park West Gallery for its stunning museum-style interior, with more than 20 spacious galleries exhibiting an array of impressive fine art.

Written and directed by Fischer’s husband, Lee Kirk, “The Giant Mechanical Man” premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2012 and is scheduled for theatrical release this Friday. Fischer plays a soft-spoken zookeeper who falls for a silver-painted street performer (Chris Messina of “Julie and Julia”), while her sister (“Watchmen” star Malin Ackerman) tries to set her up with Grace’s character, a pompous motivational speaker.

“This was a new and exciting opportunity for Park West Gallery,” said Albert Scaglione, founder and CEO of Park West Gallery. “Park West Gallery has always been a strong local leader and advocate for the metro Detroit community, so it was our pleasure to open our doors when this production required a local art institution. We look forward to seeing Park West Gallery featured on the big screen.”
