This week on WBFO's Press Pass, Pat Feldballe speaks with Buffalo Niagara Film Commissioner Tim Clark about the economic impact of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 filming in Buffalo, which got underway on Route 33 Monday evening.

Clark estimates an economic impact of more than $7 million to the city from the film shoot. The Kensington Expressway will be closed from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. for the next two weeks.

More than 200 people are in town for the filming and roughly 300 locals are involved in the production.

Pat is a member of the Buffalo Broadcast Hall of Fame. He hosts WBFO's Weekend Blues Show from 7-11 p.m. Saturday and 7 p.m. to midnight Sunday.
