Special to SEGAZINE
The big movie shoot came to end Friday in downtown Savannah.
Cars packed up, signs taken down and roads re-opened.
For a week and a half Broughton Street was transformed into “Bikini Bottom” for the “Spongebob Squarepants 2” movie.
Business owner John Croley says although cars couldn’t drive up to his shop a lot of the time, it wasn’t too much of a problem.
“It’s been a pretty decent week for us. It hasn’t impacted business negatively but it hasn’t really brought too much in so I can’t complain,” said Croley.
A sigh of relief for city leaders, who also worried the road closures, would’ve been a problem.
“Honestly, that was my biggest thing I was worried about and it was much better than I was expecting. We had it backed up in one or two places now and then but we had a lot of police officers out there helping direct traffic and we were able to solve any issues is there was any,” said Savannah film commission interim film services administrators William Hammargren.
