'60s-Based TV Series Turns Back the Clock Downtown

ABC's new show Pan Am hosted a film shoot on Halstead Avenue Monday.

The group of people dressed in '60s clothing along Halstead Avenue Monday weren't driven crazy by this weekend's storm—they were there for a reason.

The crew of ABC's new series Pan Am was filming parts of an episode at Harrison's  for its upcoming season.

The television crew was based in Willow Ridge Country Club for the one-day shoot, but the filming was most visible along Halstead Avenue, where Harrison Police directed traffic through the area.

Pan Am is based in 1963 and promises to capture the "energy and excitement of the Jet Age," according to ABC.com. Several '60s model cars lined the street throughout the day, including an iconic Volkswagen Camper, which was parked on the street.

This is the second known television shoot in Harrison this summer. The crew of upcoming HBO series Girls  downtown in early July.

Pan Am is scheduled to premier on ABC Sept. 25.

I was wondering what was going on Willow Ridge this afternoon when I drove by. Nice to get the movies in Harrison-good exposure and money for the businesses and town. I hope people enjoyed it. Naomi
