Filming inside the Clermont Hotel on Ponce de Leon Ave. will close the curb parking lane and sidewalk on both sides of Bonaventure Ave. between Ponce and North Ave. on March 31. Be advised there also will be set up work on March 30 and tear down work on April 1 that may also cause minor traffic disruptions.
According to the notice we received, all filming will take place inside the hotel and there should be no traffic disruption on Ponce itself. See map below.
Breakdown Productions, Inc. is currently in preproduction for the television pilot entitled Being Mary Jane for the BET tv network. The one hour drama involves the professional and personal life of Mary Jane Paul, an established television news anchor living in Atlanta. The show will star Gabrielle Union (Think Like a Man, Good Deeds, Ugly Betty, Seventh Heaven) and an ensemble cast that will begin filming April 23, 2012.
The production company states “We are currently preparing to film at Glamour Paws, 780 North Highland Ave as a local pet store.” and that they “will have the assistance of the Atlanta Police Department to insure N. Highland and St. Charles Ave traffic flow during filming. We have no plans for any road closures. The
scenes inside and outside the store are simply dialogue between actors.”
See the attached resident letter for more information on the filming and restoration schedule.
