Matt Damon spotted trying to climb through bar window as movie shoot shifts to South Shore

QUINCY, Mass. — Actor Matt Damon was spotted Wednesday trying to climb through a bar window as production on a new movie he’s featured in shifted from Boston to the South Shore.

Video shared with Boston 25 News showed the Cambridge native scaling a small stone wall outside Malachy’s Saloon on Granite Street and climbing through a window that appeared to be held open by Casey Affleck, who is starring alongside Damon in “The Instigators.”

The Instigators, an Apple Original film, “follows two thieves who go on the run with the help of one of their therapists after a robbery goes awry,” Deadline reported.

Damon and Affleck have been spotted filming around Boston in recent days, including Bova’s Bakery in the North End, a Boston Fire Department station on Cambridge Street, and at Faneuil Hall and Boston City Hall Plaza.

Bova’s, which is known for it’s 24/7 service, was closed for a week to allow for the movie shoot.

A Boston 25 photographer also captured video of Affleck stopping to show some love to a dog while on a stroll through the Back Bay.
