I set out for Bukowski Square to check on Craby Joe's (more about that later) and discovered Main Street was blocked for filming. Coming to a theater near you will be this scene from a film set in Indianapolis. The record will show that it was filmed using the Farmers and Merchants Bank at 4th Street and Main on Jan. 12, 2008.

Ps. I know I have some readers who are in law enforcement. Anybody care to critique the way this intersection has been secured? I realize it's Hollywood, but....

I have no law enforcement experience but they seem to be pointing the wrong way if an emergency came about. Maybe it's another Blues Brothers or Smokey and the Bandit movie.

If I remember correctly, Laurel Canyon doesn't run that way, and that the actual street was Victory Blvd.

--I'm sorry. Your memory is playing tricks on you. Laurel Canyon is North-South. Here's a Google Earth shot.
