The party for the premiere of Ben Affleck’s Charlestown-based bank-robber movie “The Town’’ lasted late into the night Tuesday with A-list guests lounging under red lights on sectional sofas that replaced picnic tables near Gate B at Fenway Park. Revelers who mingled as a DJ played tunes on the big, green spiral staircase included Theo Epstein, Kelli Pedroia, Ashley Papelbon, Bill Hall’s fiancee, Tinique Parker, Tiffany Ortiz, Linda Pizzuti Henry, as well as the folks who walked the red carpet — Blake Lively with her boyfriend Penn Badgley, Affleck, Matt Damon and his family, rapper-actor Slaine, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Hall, and Jon Hamm. Also spotted was a subdued, Red Sox hat-wearing Brendan Fraser, who starred in the locally-shot “School Ties’’ with both Affleck and Damon in 1992. Fraser also filmed the kids’ flick “Furry Vengeance’’ on the North Shore last year.
Shooting on Contagion will run from September 25, 2010 through January 11, 2010.
