'Fun Size' turns downtown Cleveland into movie set

CLEVELAND - Paramount Pictures' movie "Fun Size" has turned locations around northeast Ohio into movie sets over the past couple of weeks. Most recently, the crew has moved its movie shoot into downtown Cleveland overnight, closing roads and taking over parking lots.

Decorations and costumes gave the Warehouse District the feel of October, as the movie starring Nickelodeon's Victoria Justice takes place during Halloween. Downtown Cleveland is the latest location for the crew, which has also filmed scenes in Cleveland Heights and Euclid.

All of the filming occurs after dark, through the middle of the night. Another one of the movie's stars, Johnny Knoxville, was spotted on the set early Tuesday morning during the shoot.

With the crew in town until Wednesday morning, drivers, walkers and bikers should expect delays and road closures in the Warehouse District.

The list of road closings include:

-West 9th Street between Superior Avenue and Johnson Court will be closed from 9 p.m. through 6 a.m. Monday, July 11 and Tuesday, July 12.

-West St. Clair Avenue between West 10th Street and West 6th Street will be closed from 9 p.m. through 6 a.m. Monday July 11 and Tuesday, July 12.
