Lancaster Road became a slice of downtown Americana for a new film.

The area outside the Guild Hall and the Town Hall was given a makeover during Thursday (12 July).

A big yellow taxi and a distinctive red American car were parked up on the street.

The actors were transported back into 1960s California for the film IP Man 4.
