This is going to be one of your last opportunities to watch “Transformers: Age of Extinction” film in Chicago.
The robotos-in-disguise sequel starring Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci and Kelsey Grammer will be shooting around the 111 S. Wacker Drive building from 7 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Monday. According to a letter sent out to businesses in the area, “Filming will involve the use of live stunts and large pyrotechnics.”
And now for the boring part: Street closures will take place on Wacker Drive from Washington to Adams, Franklin Street from Madison to Adams, Monroe Street from Canal to Franklin and Madison Street from Canal to Franklin.
“Age of Extinction” began shooting in Chicago in late-August and is scheduled to wrap here the first week of Oct. The movie has already filmed at the Blue Cross Blue Shield Tower in the Near East Side neighborhood, the Uptown Theatre in the Uptown neighborhood, the plaza in McCormick Place and “The Bean” in Millennium Park, among other places.
