City Block In Downtown Scranton Closed For Movie Filming

April 1, 2019

Wyoming Avenue at Spruce Street in Downtown Scranton are closed as movie crews set up to shoot a scene in a film called “The Virtuoso” — starring Anthony Hopkins, Anson Mount and Abbie Cornish. There’s a couple of onlookers nearby. It’s a little chilly, so people aren’t sticking around long. The climactic scene planned for today involves a collision between a car and a recreational vehicle in the 200 block of Wyoming Avenue. A nice looking red Mercedes and an RV have been spotted on the block. The film centers on a hit man, played by Mount, whose first kill will take place from his upper-story perch in the former Dime Bank building at 400 Spruce St. Police will close the block between Linden and Spruce streets as crews set up. When the scene happens, police will also close the 300 block of Wyoming to Mulberry Street. That will allow the car to speed toward the RV as the hit man fires a gun at the car.
