Ben Affleck's 'The Town' taking over the North End

While Cambridge homeboy Ben Affleck continues to shoot scenes for his blue-collar heist flick "The Town" all week at Fenway Park, the made-in-Boston film's schedule leaked online and, well, crews are literally taking over the North End beginning Thursday, Oct. 1 until Tuesday, Oct. 13.

Highlights include scenes slotted for the Pizzeria Regina on Thacher Street and New Spin Laundry on Salem Street which will be transformed into one of the banks under siege.

And, in a move that will more than likely cause a traffic snarl or two, they're closing down the entire Charlestown Bridge on Saturday, Oct. 3 and Sunday, Oct. 4.

Yep, Affleck's "The Town" is officially commandeering the town.

Here's the rundown:
  • Thursday, Oct. 1 from 6 a.m.-8 p.m. on at N Bennett, Tileston, Wiggin and Unity streets in the North End.
  • Friday, Oct. 2 from 6 a.m.-8 p.m. at Pizzeria Regina located at 11 1/2 Thacher Street
  • Saturday, Oct. 3 and Sunday, Oct. 4 from 6 a.m.-8 p.m. on the Charlestown Bridge including Commercial St. from Henchman to N. Washington.
  • Tuesday, Oct. 6 and Wednesday, Oct. 7 from 6 a.m.-8 p.m. at New Spin Laundry located at 100 Salem Street which will be transformed into a bank.
  • Wednesday, Oct. 7 from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. at Prince Street in front of Polcari Park.
  • Wednesday, Oct. 7 from 6 a.m.-8 p.m. at Snowhill, N. Hudson and Charter streets.
  • Thursday, Oct. 8 from 6 a.m.-8 p.m. at Margaret and Sheafe streets.
