MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)- Filming for a “Major Motion Picture” will begin on Saturday at the Macon Terminal Station in downtown.

Planning & Zoning Executive Director Jim Thomas says the filming will take place inside, and outside of the Terminal Station.

“This is great for the community. It really showcases what we have here in Macon, and what we’ve got here,” Thomas said. “The movie industry is a huge industry, so I think it’s really good to have them here in town now using our facilities.”

During the filming, the Terminal Station’s main lobby will be closed for the weekend. Macon Transit Authority tenants and riders will have to make arrangements.
