A kitchen fire forced the iconic Llanerch Diner in Delaware County, Pennsylvania to close.

The landmark eatery along Township Line Road in Upper Darby became internationally famous after being featured prominently in the 2012 film “Silvers Linings Playbook” starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence.

One of the diner’s cooking grills caught fire around 5:30 Monday morning. Upper Darby firefighters said it took about 20 minutes to bring the flames under control. No one was hurt.

Firefighters had to open up part of the ceiling to make sure the flames hadn’t extended up there, fire officials said.

A stalwart eatery in Delaware County, the Llanerch was prominently featured in “Silver Linings Playbook.” A famous scene from the movie focused on the actors eating in a booth. Actress Jennifer Lawrence won the Best Actress Academy Award for her role.

The diner will remained closed for at least a week until the owner gains clearance to reopen from the health department, firefighters said.
