The marquee outside the Alex Theatre undoubtedly turned a few heads during the morning commute today, announcing  in large red letters that the classic porn movie “Deep Throat” would be shown in a private screening.

Alas, it's actually all part of the filming of a bio-pic about the "Deep Throat" star Linda Lovelace. The porn star will be played by actress Amanda Seyfried, who replaced Lindsay Lohan in the role.

A film crew is scheduled to arrive at the theater at 1 p.m. to start shooting, according to security officials at the scene.
