Boston Tourists Departing On `Departed' Mobster Tour

BOSTON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Fans of The Departed can now depart on their own mobster adventure, thanks to a Boston- based movie tour company.

Boston Movie Tours spokesman Jeff Coveney says has just started a Departed tour that stops at 10 locations used in the Martin Scorsese movie, including Matt Damon’s apartment, Jack Nicholson’s gangster hangout and the roof top where Martin Sheen meets his demise.

To pass the time between stops, tour guides ask mobster trivia games and reenact scenes from the flick and other Boston-based mobster movies like Mystic River and Boondock Saints.

But while The Departed has lots of drinking scenes, Coveney says the tour doesn’t turn into a pub crawl after hours – mainly because key bar scenes were filmed in a local dry cleaners that was made up to look like a seedy bar for the movie.
