Walnut St Closed for Paranoia Filming on Tuesday – All Business are open on the Street
About 2 weeks ago signs went up at 6th and Walnut stating that Walnut Street would be closed from 11th to 13th and 12th Streets from Sansom to Locust. At first I thought it was because of all the great repaving they’re doing, but then after a watching them pave the many streets I noticed they don’t really close the streets for that all day long.
I had seen the signs before and it could only mean one thing, yeah outdoor filming of Paranoia. I went to the street last week to investigate. First I wanted to find out if the businesses were opened, so I could get the word out. Last time when they filmed for Dead Man Down on Walnut Street many people thought those business were closed, and they weren’t. I am here to tell you all the stores and restaurants are open except for Caribou Cafe. Now the Irish Bar next to Beasley Law Firm was unsure of their status as the details hadn’t been ironed out with the film crew yet. But they are open, they probably won’t be serving outside.
They’ll be shooting the movie in and out of the Beasley Building. To some of us it will always be the 2nd story, a club where we partied all night long back up until 1996.
Filming is the exterior of this building, and interior of Caribou Cafe. Filming is from sometime between 6AM til 11PM.
