Posted by on Mar 31, 2017 in News |

Lions Den Productions, LLC with the support of the Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Office, City of Atlanta, and Fulton County is planning to film scenes for a Feature Film in Castleberry Hill on Saturday April 1st, 2017.

Due to the complexity of the scenes, it will be necessary for the safety of the public and the crew to close Peters St.SW (between Fair St and Ted Turner Dr.) from 6am-9pm. Although the permit is for this window of time, the majority of filming will occur between 4pm-8pm.

There will be detour signs and the assistance of off-duty APD to ensure the proper flow of traffic while our work is in progress.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Locations Department at 404-662- 4030 or
