Star Wars granted permission to close main street in Dubrovnik

Written by  Mar 01, 2016

The City of Dubrovnik has given the production company that is filming the eighth episode of Star Wars in the city permission for a temporary regulation of movement inside the historic centre. The production team is currently constructing the set for the filming which is due to start on the 9th of March. And as the set is on the busiest street in the Old City, the Stradun, the production team had asked for this street to be closed during the actual filming. This request has been granted by the City of Dubrovnik.

The first restriction comes into force tomorrow, the 2nd of March, when the main street will be closed from 8pm until midnight so that film rehearsals can be carried out. The city administration has asked all citizens to adhere to the temporary rules and to use other streets.

When filming starts on the 9th of March until the 16th of March the main street will be closed again and special regulations will be in force.
