Captain America Filming

Vita Ray Productions UK Ltd have started producing Captain America: The First Avenger here in Manchester’s Northern Quarter and for the next month Dale, Tariff, Back Piccadilly and Mangle Street will be turned into downtown New York.

Our are offices are right in the middle of all the action, so we decided to create a photo blog roll to documentate what was happening on set in our little corner of Manchester.

Preparation and production will be taking place between 6th September to the 3rd of October and then there will be a week where they reinstate the streets back to their original state.

Update 

Filming has now finished. Here are a selection of some of the photos on our photo-blog.
