City may provide extra security

Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley has closed City Hall to the public for the rest of the year due to the increase in COVOID-19 cases, Friday, Nov. 13, 2020. The city will install air purifiers in the building. The building, on the National Register of historic places, was built between 1888-1893. The architect was Samuel Hannaford.

The crew filming the Timothee Chalamet movie in Cincinnati has been hit by car break-ins, prompting film industry officials to seek help from taxpayers for extra security.

Cincinnati City Council is poised to decide Wednesday whether to spend $50,000 to boost protection for the film crews. The request passed through council’s budget and finance committee, hinting at a likely yes vote by the full council.

Mayor John Cranley sought the protection for production on the feature film, "Bones and All,"  The movie, helmed by director Luca Guadagnino and starring Chalamet, began filming here earlier this summer.

 Cincinnati Police could not immediately be reached for comment.

The money was requested by the film company, Kristen Schlotman, executive director of Film Cincinnati, said in a statement to The Enquirer.
