Buffalo commuter rail service halts for film shoot

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — A section of Buffalo's Metro Rail line is being shut down so a movie crew can shoot scenes for a new Keanu Reeves film.

Metro Rail's aboveground section in downtown Buffalo will not be running from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.

Transit officials say the suspension of train service could cause some delays during the morning and evening commutes.

Shuttle buses will be available for commuters affected by rail service interruptions.

In his new film, "Henry's Crime," Reeves plays a toll booth worker wrongly accused of robbing a bank.

Filming in the Buffalo area is expected to wrap up later this week.
