Revere Beach transforms into Miami Beach for ‘Black Mass’

The Whitey Bulger movie based on the book “Black Mass” is still filming around Boston — this time at Revere Beach, or shall we say, Miami Beach. Palm trees have been planted, turning a stretch of the sand this steamy summer day into the latest local movie set. Across the street, a pizza restaurant on Revere Beach Boulevard was made into a Cuban cafe.

Live palm tress were planted in the sand of Revere Beach to transform the area into Miami Beach for a scene from the movie “Black Mass.”
