In the open lots behind the buildings was the base camp with dressing rooms and other support staff. Along sections of Central Avenue, there were several large trucks and trailers parked as well as small tents set up on the sidewalk.
Middletown police blocked the street to keep traffic out during the actual filming. About 60 people were working Thursday on the film.
