The Dark Knight Rises will be heading to Pittsburgh next week so we figured there was no better time to dedicate a comments thread to the film which will allow PA movie fans (or those planning to travel to check out the set) to help each other track the movie down!
In the past, Pittsburgh fans have shared tips to help track the movies Abduction and The Perks of Being A Wallflower via our Open Threads so we’re hoping we can duplicate that success with TDKR when it arrives in town!
The Dark Knight Rises is tentatively scheduled to film in Pittsburgh between July 28 and Aug. 21.
Here are the locations we know for sure (so far):
The Dark Knight Rises is set to film at CMU on July 30 & 31 AND August 3 & 4.
UPDATE: Street closures for the CMU shoot begin on July 25, but filming will not take place until July 30.
They are prepping to film a scene at Rock Airport, but the date has not been confirmed yet. One of our readers, @NikiMarieR spotted black and yellow MR (the film’s working title is Magnus Rex) signs pointing to the airport on July 16!
UPDATE: The Rock Airport shoot should take place around July 28 & July 29.
On August 6, they are filming a big football game scene at Heinz Field, which you can be a part of! Get all of the details here.
Batman 3 is also filming in downtown Pittsburgh between August 10- August 20. Street closures will include Oliver Ave, Cherry Way, and Smithfield St.
There has also been activity at a local studio, as well as a first sighting of the Batmobile in PA!
