Old courthouse to be a new film set

SANTA FE (KRQE) – An empty old courthouse in downtown Santa Fe is being put to new use.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports the building will be used as a film set.

It’s been empty since the summer of last year when the state district court moved to a new building.

On Thursday, a crew working on a cable network movie took over for filming. It’s also scheduled to be used for a TV show called “Longmire.”

A spokeswoman for Santa Fe County said the production company paid $1,400.
