According to a film permit, crews will be on Fifth Ave. from 3 p.m., Friday, Sept. 20, until 9 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 21.

In July, a spokeswoman for Blumhouse Productions confirmed that both Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends would be filmed in the Port City.
The two movies are direct sequels to last year’s Halloween, which itself is a sequel to the iconic 1978 horror film by the same name. The new trilogy ignores the previous nine films and rebooted the franchise.
