Downtown "Transforms" Into Movie Set

By Marcus Gilmer in Miscellaneous on Jul 12, 2010 2:20PM

Stretches of downtown were closed to the public this weekend as local filming began on the action-film-blockbuster-to-be Transfomers 3. Friend of Chicagoist Emily Tillack sent in a few photos she snapped of the filmed action. If you got any photos of Optimus Prime and the like zooming around town, feel free to share them in our Flickr pool.
