Auto and street car traffic on St. Charles Avenue between Louisiana and Napoleon avenues will be delayed periodically this evening.
The movie "Waking Madison" will be filming in the area between 3 and 11 p.m. and traffic will be halted while scenes are being shot. Delays are expected to last no longer than five minutes, according to information provided by Mayor Ray Nagin's office.
Parking will be prohibited between the 3600 and 3900 blocks of St. Charles on both the river and lake sides. Parking also will be prohibited between the 1400 and 1600 blocks of Peniston Street, which will be cleared for production crew vehicles.
(We live about three short blocks from where the filming was taking place. Alas, no Elisabeth Shue sightings. Sigh.)
