Public Enemies shoot at Capitol provides lunchtime show in downtown Madison

Downtown workers, residents, and students were treated to a major dose of midday entertainment as the Public Enemies production continued in front of the Capitol on Monday. Gawkers gathered in force at the King Street and North Hamilton entrances to the building, as well as on the exterior sidewalk of Pinckney Street, all straining to catch a glimpse of the scene taking place on top of the Capitol steps leading down to East Washington Avenue.

The talk among much of the crowd was the location and appearance of Christian Bale, who is playing the FBI agent Melvin Purvis in the epic production from UW graduate Michael Mann about the crime wave of the early 1930.
