'Bourne' movie filming shuts down part of Strip

Posted at 9:57 AM, Jan 21, 2016

Filming continued last night and this morning on the Las Vegas Strip of the latest installment in the "Bourne" movie franchise.

Las Vegas Boulevard was closed between Flamingo Road and Tropicana Avenue between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. to accommodate the film crew.

Although the closure may have inconvenienced a number of drivers, many others were excited to see the action on the Strip. Dozens of people gathered to watch the filming throughout the night.
 

 

Several scenes were shot at the Aria hotel-casino last week and scenes were shot at the bus station in downtown Las Vegas and at McCarran International Airport before that.

Vital Vegas has been piecing together what they think the movie may be about based on photographs and video and people who have seen the filming in progress.

Vital Vegas says that the chase sequence is expected to end dramatically at the Riviera, which has been lit for several days. The Riviera closed last year in anticipation of being demolished for new convention space.
