Movie Filming Will Close Some Downtown Streets

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Ala. -

 If you're traveling downtown, you may have noticed movie cameras, production vehicles, and occasionally Nicholas Cage along  downtown streets as the city serves as the backdrop for the major motion picture, "Tokarev." Film officials release that they'll be closing some downtown streets this week as they prepare to film a chase scene.

Filming will occur between the hours of 8AM and 8PM on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Filming will primarily take place  on St. Francis Street, St. Joseph Street and Royal Street. There will be road closures at those intersections, so drivers should expect delays in their  commute. As a safety precaution for the crew and public, numerous metered parking spots will also be blocked off along the route this week.

Although there'll be numerous road closings, the City of Mobile Police and Fire department will work to reroute drivers to their destinations.

Road Closings:

  •  NO PARKING on Royal St. from St. Michaels St. to Government St. starting Tuesday, 6/18, at 5:00pm through Sunday night, 6/23.

 

  • NO PARKING on St. Francis St. from N Conception to Royal St. starting Tuesday, 6/18, at 5:00pm through Saturday, 6/23.

 

  •  NO PARKING on St. Joseph's St. from St. Michaels to St. Dauphin St. starting Tuesday, 6/18, at 5:00pm, through Sunday 6/23.

 

  •  NO PARKING on Dauphin St. from St. Emmanuel St. to Royal St. starting Tuesday, 6/18, at 5:00pm, through Saturday 6/23.

 

  •  Expect some delays Wednesday, 6/19, Saturday, 6/22, and Sunday, 6/23 on St. Francis street, Royal street, and roads near Bienvill Square as they block off roads for filming.
