They will be filming both interior and exterior scenes in and around private residences as listed below on August 30 and August 31, 2019.  This project has only 6 days of filming scheduled in Ontario (the majority of filming has taken place in Europe), and is spending 2 of those days with us in here in Cambridge!  It is based on a novel by Walter Tevis and chronicles the life of a child prodigy, as she struggles with addiction to become the greatest chess player in the world.
