Coming to Colorado Springs’ west side: Robert Redford, Jane Fonda and ‘Our Souls at Night’

Coming Monday to the west side: Robert Redford and Jane Fonda.

Movie crews for the Netflix film “Our Souls at Night” have descended upon a quiet stretch of West Pikes Peak Avenue between 11th and 12th streets.

“I think it’s fantastic,” said Amy Long, film liaison for the Colorado Springs Film Commission. “They have a big crew, they’ve got top, A-list actors and it’s on Netflix, which is becoming as popular as anything with great, quality programming. It lends a lot of credibility to us as a filming location and brings in tens of millions of dollars with a production this size.”

According to a neighbor who didn’t want to be identified, film crews selected four houses on the street as finalists. The owners of 1202 W. Pikes Peak Ave. accepted the offer and agreed to relocate until Oct. 31. Crew members are now on site renovating several inside rooms and sprucing up the landscape. Part of a fence went up behind the house, the neighbor said, along with at least half a dozen new plants in the front yard, all with tags still attached.
