That’s a wrap! 🎬
The Old Man and the Gun, a movie starring Robert Redford, Danny Glover, Casey Affleck and Sissy Spacek, has officially joined the list of movies made in or set in the Gem City.
Redford plays an elderly bank robber now living in a retirement community who wants another heist while Affleck, who recently won an Oscar, plays the police officer trying to catch him.

Cars seemingly plucked from the 1970s took over Second Street near Liberty Tower as part of a chase and the lobby and tower itself were used for scenes as well.
At one point on Monday, Redford and Glover were spotted filming the bank robbery movie on the roof of Talbott Tower, 118 W. First St.
Well, that all served for quite the photo opportunity for all of us fan girls and boys. 📸 Here are some of the best captured moments:
When these two had a heartfelt conversation on the roof:
