HBO’s “Watchmen” is returning for another day of filming in Macon at the Douglass Theatre on Thursday.

Crews will begin setting up Wednesday at 10 p.m. at the downtown venue for the new TV show that will premier later this year. Scenes for the pilot were filmed in Macon last year and in April more scenes were shot around downtown.

No parking will be allowed along both sides of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard between Cherry and Poplar streets until filming ends. Parking will be limited to one side of Cherry Street between MLK and Third Street, according to a Macon-Bibb County news release.

Also, the section of Mulberry Street Lane located behind the Douglass will be closed to through traffic. However, the Mulberry Street parking deck will stay open, the release said.

“Watchmen” is a science fiction comic book series about superheroes who were able to alter history while investigating a murder during the Cold War.

The Douglass Theatre opened in 1921 and became a place where notable musicians performed and movies were shown throughout the years.
