Downtown BR streets to close for movie shoot
BATON ROUGE - City-parish leaders said several streets around downtown Baton Rouge will close starting Thursday for a movie shoot.
The closures will take place over two weeks for the filming of "Search Party," according to Mayor Kip Holden.
"We welcome our friends from Gold Circle and Universal back to Baton Rouge," Holden said.
