It looks like the city of Pittsburgh is quiet once again as the location shooting of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ has come to an end.

For the past 3 weeks, Christopher Nolan and the cast and crew for the movie have inundated the city streets with snow, car chases, fight scenes, explosions and even dug a big hole for the Batmobile to fall into. The plethora of videos and pictures from the shoot didn’t seem to bother the usually secretive Nolan as he thanked the city by placing an ad in The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette with the words “Thank you Pittsburgh” overlaid  in the familiar bat image. The ad is signed Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas & Charles Roven, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures at the bottom.

In one of the last videos that will come out of the location shooting, here is the Batwing and one of the Tumblers leaving Pittsburgh lead by a police escort.
