Take Our Poll And Tell Us What You Think In The Comments.

The in Stonington Borough into Nor’easter Diner in the town of Great Hope Springs included a lobster mural. A mural that many locals and those at Noah’s have fallen in love with.

“Yes, we love it,” said Debbie Papp, whose husband John Papp is one of the co-owners of .

With filming on the movie which stars and Steve Carell, wrapping up this week the question is does the mural get to stay even when Noah’s becomes Noah’s again and not Nor’easter Diner?

“Yes, we get to leave it up if we want to, in other words, the movie crew won't paint over it,” Papp said.”

The question is if the will allow Noah’s to keep the mural even if it’s just for a little while.

“Have to wait and see? It’s all about the regulations,” Papp said.

Tell the board of Warden and burgesses to get their noses out of the air and let Noah's do what they want I thought this was a FREE country.

What an adorable mural! Whatbetter way to remember the filming adventure.

I agree with Cindy it's a memory that will fade if taken down,or repainted,please let them keep the memory. It will become a busier diner as in Mystic Pizza,more people will be in the borough looking for it and bring more business for the area....

Yes, of course, keep the mural. It has a history... a story to tell... and now is a part of what makes the Stonnington Borough: "The Borough!". Lynn Brown

Let them keep it. Patsy Crothers is right, it will generate more business for our stores in the borough.

a free country with elected officials Craig- like so many stonington residents and our town government you apparently need a refresher in civics and government, we live in a republic not a democracy.

It's ugly, cartoonish, and Noah's is neither a Diner, nor do they serve Lobster-

As long as I get my seat @ bar on Sunday.. Don't really mind the mural.

While the sign is clever and a reminder of the movie, it is not appropriate to keep it on the wall. First, it would be advertising something that isn't here. Second, if it were redone with the Noah's logo, it would be totally contrary to all Borough Zoning. Right now there are problems and issues in the Borough caused by the use and misuse of banners which, whether on the square, hanging on private fences or befouling the air above Water Street have been a bone of contention for a couple of years now. The last thing we need is more ugliness caused by large and often tacky commercial signs; and allowing that mural, would open the door for exactly that. The sign ordinance has worked for a long time, not for just two weeks of a movie. shoot.

In response to Patsy, Mystic Pizza was mostly filmed in the Borough and a sign was on the bulding that was used--most newer residents don't know that because the appropriate place for such a sign was over a real business with that REAL name.

And I agree with both of you. The movie "Mystic Pizza" still brings people and tourist dollars into Mystic. Why one earth would Stonington want a visually pleasing mural removed when it could possibly do the same for their town? As the name and nature of the business being different than portrayed in the mural, some of the best art on building walls has nothing to do with the present-day business. It's graphic history just as this mural portrays a bit of history of a film being shot here.

Lighten up you bunch of uptight stuffies.
Patsy Crothers August 01, 2012 at 03:15 AM
Who are you speaking to?? The bunch of Stuffies??I think it'll bring business to the borough.
Nathan McKay October 17, 2012 at 05:32 PM
To the 4% that said no, shame on you. I love this picture. It makes me want lobster.
