ALMOST NO PARKING IN CENTER CITY FOR HALLOWEEN Jason Statham and Safe to Film All Over Center City This Weekend

You might be asking What Movie is filming in Philadelphia, especially this Halloween weekend cause parking in Center City this Halloween Weekend is going to be impossible, thanks to Jason Statham and his new movie Safe filming. I have to say what a STUPID idea to film this movie on this weekend along Broad Street and Most of the length of Walnut From Broad to 17th Street. (Photo Marilyn Stollenwerk yesterday outside of Cebu in the 100 block of Chestnut St)Broad Street in front of the Banana Republic. No parking 10/30 10PM – 10/31 Midnite. These signs go from Chestnut until Locust, on the Southbound signs. There’s a good chance there will be large trucks parked her starting Saturday night, so traffic will not be a treat in this area either. (My guess is this will be a day shoot, it could be the one inside the Bellevue like I reported 2 weeks ago.)

Locust Street sign points to the movie set on Broad Street, so there’s a good chance that near this sign will be the Holding Lot for extras.

10/30 10PM and 10/31 11:59PM on Walnut all the way up to 17th Street,
basically the main drag so it will be a shit show in traffic on Halloween weekend. Take Septa, carpool
Monday 11/1 – Tuesday 11/2 – 6AM to 12AM In front of Bellevue looking towards Walnut. This could be the inside shots at the Bellevue in the Lobby and also in XIX.

I went to Chipotle‘s Mexican Grill yesterday. It was delicious. If you dress as processed food they will give you a $2 burrito on Halloween.
Check out the new floor to ceiling window’s at the old Susanna Foo. Look for this same window design to show up at the old Roy’s around the corner.

http://philly.brownstoner.com/ Had a nice article on this new building this week. It’s a reality office. Love the modern design, and it’s on Walnut Street. How did that get thru the Historic Commission?
