White robed actors dressed suspiciously like terrorists faced off against off-duty KPD officers around midnight Saturday on Gay Street.
Gay Street was completely closed to traffic between West Vine Avenue and Jackson Avenue, drawing large crowds of confused onlookers from neighboring restaurants.
Around a dozen off-duty KPD officers brandishing automatic weapons in full riot gear stood their ground on one end of the street while several white cloaked terrorist-looking actors kept to their side.
Nobody was willing to comment on what the film was about, however one production crew member said that it was for "the film festival."
