If you were driving by the Alex Theatre in Glendale, you might have done a double-take after passing a marquee proclaiming that the theater was hosting a private screening of "Deep Throat."

It turns out the theater is not screening the 1970s porn flick — instead the theater is being used as part of a movie shoot for the upcoming biopic on "Deep Throat" star Linda Lovelace, according to the Glendale News-Press. The film stars Amanda Seyfried as the porn star who later became an outspoken opponent of pornography.

We've been hearing more about the film since Demi Moore had to drop out of a role in the film playing Gloria Steinem, thanks to her rumored troubles with whip-its or "something like incense."
