CINCINNATI — Film crews loaded and unloaded gear along Sixth Street in downtown Cincinnati Wednesday morning. Shooting for the film "Dry Run," was scheduled all day in the Central Business District.

Actor and producer Mark Ruffalo gave a wave has he rolled up to the set at the Federal Office Building.

"It's pretty exciting seeing the streets closed, all the camera work, all the directors and stuff running around. It's been pretty exciting whenever it comes to Cincinnati," said Kenneth Watson, who drove from Lexington to catch of glimpse of Ruffalo.

Tri-State residents hired as extras for the film said they’re excited to be part of something 'big.'

"It's just fun, just gets you out of your comfort zone," said extra Stuart Engle.

"Dry Run" is based on the true story of Cincinnati defense attorney Robert Bilott, played by Ruffalo, who filed an environmental lawsuit against chemical company DuPont and exposed decades of chemical pollution. Ruffalo’s co-star Anne Hathaway has yet to be spotted in the Tri-State.

Parking restrictions in curb lanes will be in place to accommodate crews and equipment until midnight in the following locations:

  • South side of Sixth Street between Main and Sycamore
  • South side of Sixth Street between Vine and Walnut
  • West side of Sycamore between Fifth and Sixth
  • North side of Fifth between Main and Sycamore
  • North side of Fifth between Race and Walnut
  • South side of Fourth between Elm and Plum
