Head to the movies this weekend and you may just catch a glimpse of your neighbor on the big screen. "This Is Where I Leave You" hits theaters on Friday, Sept. 19 and, in addition to the star-studded cast, some members of Congregation KTI and Port Chester firefighters also share the stage in the Warner Brothers film.

Jason Bateman, Tina Fey and Jane Fonda, among others, filmed in the sanctuary and outside the building at Congregation Kneses Tifereth Israel in Port Chester for one day in May 2013. After surveying several synagogues in Westchester and Long Island, film scouts chose KTI because of the area as well as the space and light inside.

The scene that director Shawn Levy shot at KTI takes place in chapter 30 of Westchester author Jonathan Tropper's book of the same name. In it, the narrator, played by Bateman, attends Shabbat services with his mother, Fonda, sister Fey, and brothers Adam Driver and Corey Stoll. To make it look authentic, members of KTI played themselves and filled the pews.

While services are ongoing, the fire alarm is set off and everyone has to exit the building. For this reason, Warner Brothers paid to have a Port Chester fire truck manned with actual firefighters on site. In total, Port Chester garnered about $2,000 for the various fees associated with filming in the village. While KTI did not release how much they charged for use of the synagogue, they said it was consistent with industry prices.

The comedy, about a dysfunctional family that reunites when the patriarch dies, will be showing at AMC Loews Port Chester 14 at 4:50 p. m. and 7:20 p. m. starting on Sept. 19.
