Public Enemies

Downtown Oshkosh has been turned back to the 1930’s for the filming of Public Enemies . The movie stars Johnny Depp and Christian Bale. Unfortunately while we were there they were filming out at the airport on a closed set and were not planning to shoot downtown until later in the week. We still went down to check out what all the fuss was about.

Laura and Kevin stand in front of some old timey advertisements.

Wait that’s not a real wall! ๐Ÿ™‚

The New Moon Coffee Co. receives a whole new face lift.

Job postings. 29 cents!

Putting the finishing touches on a street car complete with its own track to roll down the street.

Kevin, Laura, Mary and Dave check out the massive green screen they constructed for a scene that is to take place in Racine, Wisconsin.

  1. A close look at the “job ads” indicates that Oshkosh will be standing in for Chicago…maybe a Depression-era gangster flick??

  2. That’s sweet! My parents called me to tell me everything you have pictured. I didn’t realize the movie is to take place in Racine. I was born in Racine, WI.
