NEWNAN, COWETA Co (CBS46) -- Downtown Newnan transformed into a movie set Monday for the film "The Conjuring 3."

The historic downtown square took on a 70s vibe for the filming.

Streets are blocked off to traffic, but that doesn't stop people from heading there to gawk and check out what's going on.

One of the small business owners tells CBS46 News that the extra activity downtown does not translate into extra business, and that it actually hurts sales.  She said it's not lucrative but it's fun to see the filming going on.
