St. Catharines is going Hollywood

CKTB-News_ Netflix film shoot St. Catharines

Lights, camera, action.  We will be hearing those words this month in downtown St. Catharines.

Netflix will be filming portions of a new series,  Madam C.J. Walker starting next week in the Garden City.

Trish Poloko, with the Downtown Association says residents won't recognize parts of the downtown once the film crews set up.

St. Catharines will be substituting for 1919 Indianapolis.

St. Paul Street will be closed to traffic from Queen to Carlisle Street and James Street will be closed from St. Paul to King Street for two days, August 12th and 13th.

Downtown businesses will remain open to pedestrian traffic.

No word if the series star, Oscar winner Octavia Spencer, will be in town for the shoot.
