Black Hole on Chestnut

The Sci-Fi Channel is shooting a cable movie in St. Louis. Earlier the Post-Dispatch reported that the film crew had shot scenes underground at the Metropolitan Sewer District's 19th-Century Bissell Point sewage treatment facility. This week the film crew used the Soldiers Memorial in downtown as a backdrop. Yesterday, mock military troops and ambulances were clustered in front of the memorial. The name of the film is Black Hole, according to one of the grips I encountered on the street. The plot involves a black hole that threatens to envelope the earth.
