The set of Indiana Jones 5 brought a flavour of Hollywood to Glasgow, drawing eager crowds to marvel at its new look… but now filming is coming to a close and the city is returning to normality.

Temporarily reimagined as 1960s New York, several streets were given a makeover and strung with lines of American flags.

Beneath the stars and stripes, local traffic was diverted to make way for filming what is thought to be the July 1969 ticker-tape parade in New York, which welcomed back astronauts from the moon landings and showered the roads in confetti.


Now, the signage which took shop fronts back in time is being peeled away and bunting taken down as the set is dismantled.

Over the past month, eagle-eyed onlookers have been treated to a marching band and what appeared to be a chase scene, featuring a motorbike and horseman galloping up St Vincent Street.

The filming began earlier this month and has been met with mixed responses from residents. One local said it was the most "incredible thing he had ever seen in Glasgow city centre." He said: "I love seeing the set of the Indiana Jones film. I loved seeing the horses and the cheerleaders and the American marching band. It’s incredible. It’s one of the best things I have ever seen in my life. I love it."

But others have hit out at the disruption the set has caused to city centre roads. One resident said: "Couldn't give a toss and it's caused absolute chaos for drivers at the busiest time of year. More streets shut off and some roads made into a single lane. Taxi drivers arent happy."
