Meryl Streep was at Long Island MacArthur Airport in Ronkonkoma last Friday to film her new movie "Ricki and the Flash," Sony Pictures Entertainment has confirmed.

Written by Diablo Cody ("Juno") and directed by Jonathan Demme ("Something Wild"), the film stars Streep as an aging rock star trying to reconnect with her children. Real-life rocker Rick Springfield will play one of her bandmembers. An Instagram photo posted earlier this week showed MacArthur Airport dressed up with a banner that said "Welcome to Bob Hope Airport," which is in Burbank, Calif.
