    No, Vallejo isn’t being invaded. And no, police weren’t trying to locate a suspect running around town late Monday night.

    The helicopters are part of the filming for “Bumblebee,” a spin-off of the Transformer motion picture series.

    Production continues on Mare Island through Friday from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. and involves “periodic work with helicopters and special effects, including pyrotechnics,” according to the Paramount Pictures press release that adds that “all noise intrusive work will be scheduled prior to midnight; timing of these activities has been determined by rigorous sound tests.”

    Downtown Vallejo shooting on Marin Street between Virginia and York streets, and on Georgia Street, between Sacramento Street and Sonoma Boulevard will be Sept. 18 and 19 between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m.

    Filming will involve street closures and suspended parking. Stores in the area will be open during this period.

    Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, thrilled the film is filmed entirely in California, said that “we’re pleased to be even a small part of Vallejo’s continuing efforts toward the reinvigoration of the film industry in our state. We hope future projects continue to come to Vallejo, San Rafael, and all of Northern California, which is sure to promote job growth and investment opportunities for local individuals and businesses alike.”

    As for the year “Bumblebee” takes place, it’s 1987, which explains the fictitious “Video House” on Marin Street.
