East Fisher Street to close Sunday mornings for film project

The city of Salisbury, in conjunction with Downtown Salisbury, Inc., announced the filming of “Purpose,” which a news release called “a unique, positive, emotional drama that reveals the power we all have in the small sincere moments that we can choose to give to others to create a massive impact in all our lives.”

The short drama will center around a factitious bus stop along the newly revitalized East Fisher Street in front of Mambo Grill and Tapas. Filming will begin Sunday, April 3, 6 a.m. to noon on East Fisher Street, and continue on various Sundays (typically 5:30 a.m. until noon) through late August. Specific dates will be provided to residents in advance.

These dates may change, the news release said. “We ask Salisbury residents to remain flexible as this production is a wonderful opportunity to infuse revenue into our community. Five to 15 cast and crew members are expected to participate in the production.”

On film dates, East Fisher Street will be closed to vehicle traffic, although businesses that are open on Sundays will remain open and can be accessed on foot.
