CINCINNATI — Drivers may find it more difficult to park in the Central Business District in Cincinnati on Wednesday. They may also find themselves in the middle of filming for the new movie "Dry Run," starring Mark Ruffalo and Anne Hathaway.

Parking restrictions in curb lanes will be in place to accommodate crews and equipment, according to the city's Department of Transportation and Engineering. Parking restrictions will be in place from 5 a.m. 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
  • South side of Seventh between Vine and Sycamore

Traffic in those areas will be maintained.

The crew of "Dry Run" is also using Hamilton’s Highland Park neighborhood as a backdrop for the movie. Ruffalo was spotted filming scenes in Hamilton Tuesday, according to WCPO media partner the Journal-News.

Drivers in Hamilton are dealing with traffic restrictions because of the movie shoot as well:

"Dry Run" is based on the true story of defense attorney Robert Bilott, played by Ruffalo, who filed an environmental lawsuit against chemical company DuPont and exposed decades of chemical pollution.

The film's director is Todd Haynes. His film "Carol" - filmed in Butler County and Cincinnati - earned six Academy Award nominations.
