'House' Closed: No Further Filming at 155 Greenville Street

The Newnan Time-Herald reports (Oct. 7) the historic Parrott-Camp-Soucy House used as a filming location for several movies and TV shows, including “The House With a Clock in its Walls”, has caused multiple street closures on the busy thoroughfare over the last two years. The HBO series “Lovecraft Country” is set to wrap up filming this weekend, and as the city waves goodbye to Random Productions, it likely will be saying goodbye to the picturesque home’s film career as well.

Residents, merchants and motorists have increasingly lost patience for the delays caused when production crews close the busy thoroughfare during filming, and Newnan Mayor Keith Brady said he does not intend to approve future projects at the house that would require drivers to find a way through or around the mess caused by full or partial closures of Greenville Street.

Brady said he is not worried that “retiring” 155 Greenville Street might dampen the enthusiasm of TV and movie production crews who might film in Newnan – after all, he said, that location is a residentially zoned property, not a commercial film site.
