Northeast Central Avenue in downtown Amite was closed to traffic and pedestrians early Tuesday, as the area transformed into a film set for producer Francis Ford Coppola’s adaptation of “On the Road” by novelist Jack Kerouac.
Roseland resident Jimmy Rhodus watched from the sidelines near the railroad tracks as crews quickly loaded equipment for the next scene. “I’ve watched a lot of movies, but I’ve never seen one filmed before until today,” said Rhodus. “They’re quick!”
Amite Police Chief Jerry Trabona said the crews didn’t stay for very long. “But everything went smoothly. We had a beautiful day working with them,” he said.
Filming took place just outside the train station, while several Amite officers were also on hand to secure the area and steady the flow of traffic during the morning rush.
