For a second straight night, Las Vegas Boulevard was transformed into a movie set, as traffic was blocked off between Tropicana Avenue and Flamingo Road.
It's all part of the scenes being shot here for the latest Bourne movie starring Matt Damon.
Of course all of the scenes are expected to lead up to a crash scene filmed a week ago near Bally's
Those that work in the area say they have mixed feelings about the lane restrictions, but love the extra attention.
"It was shut and we didn't know it. So the buses and detours and everything. But it's beautiful.  It brings more tourists and people and things of that nature so I love it," Don said.
"I think it is exciting.  I think the tourists are going to love that Matt Damon's movie is playing out here," Crystal Sharp said.
Filming is expected to extend into next week, with lane closures expected for several more days.
