Less than two weeks after turning the P&M Warehouse into a futuristic coal town and attracting worldwide attention to the City of Pleasant Living, the cast and crew of ‘The Hunger Games’ appear to be on their way to the next filming location.
Lafayette Street, between West Marion and Sumter streets, was shut down Saturday for filming. An off-duty police officer working as security for the film indicated it was the last day of filming in Shelby and that scenes were being shot inside one of the buildings.
RVs and tractor-trailers were parked on both sides of the road. What few pedestrians were out at 4 p.m. were instructed to walk only on the east side of the street.
