Today, Newark, NJ distributed a notice about changes in next week’s Newark Light Rail schedule for a movie shoot, which is almost definitely The Dark Knight Rises.
The details, which can be found on the city’s website, explain that portions of Newark Light Rail will not operate due to a movie production taking place on Thursday, November 3 and Friday, November 4. Among the closures, the notice stats that Newark Light Rail service will NOT operate both days between Orange Street and Newark Penn stations.
One of our readers, WL, explained that the main Line of Newark Light Rail is an underground subway for the most part, though the Broad Street Extension operates as an above-ground streetcar. So, it sounds like they may be shooting some type of Gotham underground subway action scene.
You can see the complete list of closures here.
Thanks again to WL for the update! If you have any scoop about the movie let us know at [email protected]!
