(Netflix)

Grab the popcorn! Victoria is back on the big screen in a new Netflix film.

Rescued by Ruby, released to the streaming platform last Thursday, March 17th, was filmed right here in BC’s capital including at a local animal shelter.

Based on a true story and starring Grant Gustin, Scott Wolf and Kaylah Zander, the film transformed the CRD Animal Shelter near Elk Lake into a movie set.

“An amazing experience for our staff, and we can’t say enough good things about the production crew, actors and everyone involved,” the shelter said.

Gustin stars as a state trooper named Dan, who has been unsuccessful in joining an elite K-9 unit until he befriends a shelter dog named Ruby.

IMDb says Rescued by Ruby was filmed between June 2nd and July 15th, 2021. 

That’s a few months before the cast and crew of the new Syfy series Reginald the Vampire started filming locally.

The series starring Spider-Man: No Way Home’s Jacob Batalon began production last November, renovating an old auto service garage in Saanich into an elaborate fast food eatery movie set.
