‘Bob Marley: One Love’ Builds New Outdoor Pavilion for Trench Town Primary School in Jamaica

Students and faculty of the Trench Town Primary School in Kingston, Jamaica welcomed a new outdoor pavilion constructed in association with the Bob Marley: One Love movie and Paramount Pictures. Local Jamaican organizations Rosetown Foundation and The American Friends Of Jamaica also contributed to making the project possible. 

The structure was built in the heart of Trench Town, and was dedicated to Colin Keith Smikle. Smikle was the location scout for the film and passed away during the filming of the movie.

The neighborhood of Trench Town played a large role in shaping the music of Bob Marley. It was in Trench Town where Bob started his first group the Teenagers, which later became The Wailers. The Bob Marley: One Love movie filmed in various locations around Trench Town, including Collie Smith Drive, 2nd Street, and 5th Street. The Pavilion is a token of the Marley Family and Paramount’s appreciation for the graciousness of the Jamaican communities that welcomed the production team throughout the planning and filming process. 

“Bob Marley: One Love” is directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green, starring Kingsley Ben-Adir as Bob Marley and Lashana Lynch as Rita Marley. The movie hits theaters worldwide on February 14, 2024. Get tickets today at OneLoveMovie.com.
