(CBS SF/AP) – The South of Market area around AT&T Park is scheduled to be closed off due to a film shoot. AT&T Park is the setting for scenes in the upcoming action movie “San Andreas” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The area around Third and Fourth Streets, between Channel & King Streets will be closed to traffic from 12noon through midnight Monday.
The front of Lefty O’Doul Plaza at AT&T Park looked like a war zone with scattered debris, a car flattened by bricks and the dead giveaway of a movie set, a large green screen erected near the gates. Johnson is scheduled to appear at the ballpark some time Monday afternoon.READ MORE: Storm Fronts March Through Bay Area; Massive Tree Topples In San Francisco Neighborhood
