Visit your favorite Boston movie locations on the Boston TV & Movie Sites Tour and the Boston Movie Mile, including sites from Greta Gerwig’s 2019 Academy Award nominated Little Women adaptation! 

The most recent reimagining of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel marks the seventh film adaptation of the beloved coming of age period piece. Little Women follows the lives of the March sisters – Jo (Saoirse Ronan), Meg (Emma Watson), Beth (Eliza Scanlen), and Amy (Florence Pugh) – and their journey from childhood to womanhood. Loosely based on the author’s own life as well as her three sisters, the classic novel turned movie adaptation is a heartfelt look into a close knit family of the 1860s, tackling themes of domesticity, work, and true love. 

Nearly every facet of Alcott’s life was tied to the Boston area, moving between quiet towns and the big city for most of her life. Due to this significance Gerwig decided to do what had never been done of previous adaptations: film the entire movie in Massachusetts. Spanning 11 different municipalities, including Harvard, Concord, and of course, Boston, there are memorable sites from the critically acclaimed film throughout the state as well as in the heart of the city. 


  • Emerson Colonial Theater: The Emerson Colonial Theater is Boston’s oldest continuously operated theater, and serves as the backdrop for a scene in which Jo watches a show in New York City.
  • Fairmont Copley Plaza: When Amy is in Paris, she attends a New Year’s Eve ball, filmed at the Fairmont Copley Plaza’s Grand Ballroom due to its elegant architecture. The Fairmont Copley Plaza is recognized as one of the Historic Hotels of America and has caught the eye of filmmakers before, with the location also serving as a backdrop in movies like American Hustle, Bride Wars, and The Firm.
  • Gibson House Museum: The Gibson House Museum served as a filming location for multiple scenes in the film, including Jo’s boarding house in New York City, as well as the homes of Professor Bhaer (Louis Garrel) and Jo’s publisher, Mr. Dashwood (Tracy Letts). The exterior of the Gibson House was also transformed, with several blocks being remodeled to fit the 1860s aesthetic of NYC. 
  • William Hickling Prescott House: The William Hickling Prescott House is just across from the Boston Common and serves as the home of the wealthy Moffat family, where Meg attends a dance.
