Photos from 'The Town' premiere at Fenway Park

Cambridge homeboy Ben Affleck and the entire cast from the made-in-Boston flick "The Town" unveiled the locally shot movie to the masses at Fenway Park on Tuesday, Sept. 14.

Co-stars Blake Lively, Jon Hamm, Rebecca Hall, Jeremy Renner and Chris Cooper walked the red carpet at the screening. The movie, which is featured in Loaded Gun Boston's fall 2010 magazine available later this week, is hitting theaters on Friday, Sept. 17.

Affleck, playing Boston's most wanted bank robber, is both directing and starring in the film following a bizarre love triangle involving a crook, a bankteller and a FBI agent. The movie is an adaptation of the blue-collar heist novel "Prince of Thieves" by Chuck Hogan.

"The Town" also stars Hamm, known as Don Draper from "Mad Men," as a FBI agent who becomes smitten with a female bank employee, played by "Frost/Nixon" and "Vicky Cristina" Barcelona actress Hall.

Lively, known as Serena van der Woodsen from "Gossip Girl," is co-starring as Affleck's troubled ex-girlfriend Krista. Renner, who won over critics with his role in the Oscar-winning "The Hurt Locker," stars as Lively's brother and Affleck's partner in crime
