Be careful, motorists, Troy is going back in time again

James Franco

Attention Rotarians (and everyone else, for that matter).

First Street in Troy will be transformed with a 1970s-1980s look and be closed to traffic on Tuesday and Wednesday for yet another movie shoot. That area cuts through the downtown  campus of Russell Sage College.

In the recent past, Troy has been a shooting locale for scenes in such films as “Scent of a Woman,” “The Time Machine,” “Age of Innocence,” “Ironweed,” “The Bostonians” and so on. This week, it will be for “The Pretenders,” starring James Franco, who has been scene in the area recently.

If you’re among the few who are unfamiliar with Franco’s work, go here for some help.
