Someone just forwarded this notice alerting workers to be on the lookout for vampires today:
“A television production crew will be shooting scenes for an upcoming episode of ‘Vampire Diaries’ near Georgia-Pacific Center today. They will close small sections of several downtown streets between 1-8 p.m. Although, you may notice preparation activity earlier.
The streets impacted are the south curb lane of John Wesley Dobbs Avenue between Peachtree Center Avenue and Peachtree Street; and between John Wesley Dobbs Avenue and Auburn Avenue. These streets will be closed intermittently while the cameras are rolling (no longer than 90 seconds).
In addition, curbside parking on Park Place between John Wesley Dobbs Avenue and Auburn Avenue will be reserved for vehicles being used in the filming.
Atlanta police officers will be on site to direct traffic.”
Just up the road, of course, “What To Expect When You’re Expecting” has been filming in Midtown, near the Woodruff Arts Center. A busy day for Atlanta’s growing movie and television industry!
