The former JMBP print shop was turned into a Midtown wine and liquor store whilst the Paxman musical instruments shop had its signage replaced with the logo of a New York City dry cleaning shop.

Fake graffiti was also added to the front of Union House.

Union Street was due to be closed overnight on Monday night for the filming to take place.

The Bohemian Rhapsody movie – starring Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury – is directed by Bryan Singer and is due to be released in the USA on Christmas Day 2018.
