Local landmarks star in Netflix’s The Adam Project

Viewers may recognize the vistas in science fiction movie

While a certain new Disney Pixar film has been getting a lot of Canadian — ahem, Torontonian — buzz this week, there’s a different streamable film that has our attention – and some of our scenery.

Netflix’s The Adam Project was filmed in the Lower Mainland in 2020 and 2021 with the bulk of the locations in Vancouver and North Vancouver. But there are also two locations that were utilized near the Tri-Cities.

Viewers may recognize the vistas around Laura’s (played by Zoe Saldana) cabin as Golden Ears Provincial Park. The cabin is located on the park’s North Beach at Alouette Lake.


You may also catch a glimpse of the park’s Gold Creek bridge. Another local location used for filming is Port Moody’s non-operational College Park Elementary, which was used for classroom scenes in the movie.

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Mark Ruffalo, Walker Scobell and Jennifer Garner, the movie is in Canada’s Top 10 on the video streaming service this week.

The plot revolves around an elder Adam contacting his younger self after accidentally crash-landing his jet from the future into the year 2022. The time-travelling pilot then teams up with his younger self and the duo head out on a mission to save the future.
