The City of Hamilton’s Planning and Economic Development Department is proactively providing The Public Record with film permits, which are public information.
I’ll need to determine how to organize this information into a dataset, likely during the summer recess when I hope to build a backend database with public facing API.
There are two films with permits this week.
xXx 3 The Return of Xander Cage will film beginning Saturday and continue until Wednesday, breaking on Thursday and Friday, and finishing up on Saturday May 1st. In the event of rain, the film permit allows for May 2, 2016.
Burlington Street (lower level) will be closed from Strathearne to Parkdale for the filming. HSR detour information is kindly compiled by Jason Nason on his Hamilton Transit Blog.
On Thursday, filming will occur in the Wilcox, Sherman, Lower Industrial Drive area. The Downtown-Bound Industrial Drive (often mistaken for Burlington Street) will be closed from 9am to 9pm. Intermittent traffic storages will occur on Wilcox, Sherman, and Lower Industrial Drive during filming.
Filming inside the St. Joseph’s Healthcare campus on West 5th on Saturday April 22. More about the film on Software Hamilton.
