Military Movie Shoot Set for Lockport Quarry


Lockport, NY - Late Monday night, Western New York Film Commissioner Tim Clark revealed that the movie, "Where Heaven & Hell Collide" is filming here. It is being directed by Greg Robbins and producer/actress Kristy Swanson is also part of the project. It is a military movie based on a true story about a man who helps injured combat troops. The movie is set to open in May of 2016.

Some of the scenes will be shot at a Lockport quarry. If you hear explosions in the Lockport area Wednesday, the Niagara County Sheriff's Department says do not be alarmed.

"Because of its location in a pretty remote area, it should be pretty low-key," says WNY Film Commissioner Tim Clark.

Lafarge Quarry will be where the sounds of gunfire and small explosions will be coming from, but they are only special effects, not the real thing.

ORLEANS/NIAGARA BOCES CLASSES ADD TO LEWISTON FIRE DEPARTMENT’S NEW LOOK

Recently the Lewiston Fire Company No. 1 completed a $1.8 million dollar renovation which included increasing the size of the fire station and remodeling the existing structure.  Fire Company Director Barry Beebe felt it was time to also make lettering, address numbers and a company logo for the front of the station as well.  “Last year while watching a bad Sabres game, I started sketching out what I thought the new logo should look like and since I have a background in design, I drew it out in CAD.  We then started thinking about who we could get to make it a reality for us.”
