Roads Near Dealey Plaza Back Open After ‘LBJ’ Film

Streets have reopened near Dealey Plaza in Dallas Monday afternoon after production wrapped up for the film "LBJ."

The film, starring Woody Harrelson, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Jeffrey Donovan, centers on the political upheaval faced by Lyndon Johnson when he was thrust into the presidency after the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

People were warned to expect the sounds of blank gunfire periodically throughout the day Monday, according to a City of Dallas spokesperson.

The filming required full closure of the 400-600 blocks of Elm Street, 400-600 blocks of Main Street, the 100 block of South Houston Street and the 100-200 blocks of North Houston Street.

Police said while the filming area was closed to the public, parking garages and open businesses would not be blocked and pedestrians would be allowed to flow freely.

The streets were scheduled to be closed Sunday, but due to weather conditions the shoot was postponed to Monday.
