Order of the Phoenix Filming Today at Tube Station in London

Filming continues for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, as MSN reports a station for the London underground rail system was used today for the movie. The report indicates that the Westminster Tube station “was closed on Sunday to allow shooting for a yet-to-be-released instalment of the young wizard’s big screen adventures.”
Readers will remember that in chapter Seven of the book, Arthur and Harry travel on the underground rail system on their way to the appearance before the Wizengamot at the Ministry of Magic.
(“Simply fabulous,” he (Arthur) whispered, indicating the automatic ticket machines. “Wonderfully ingenious.” “They’re out of order,” said Harry, pointing at the sign. “Yes, but even so…” said Mr. Weasley, beaming fondly at them.) :-)

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is due in theaters next July. Thanks Shadow!

UPDATE: Thanks to UHP for letting us know LondonTaxiTours has now posted a few pics from the filming today, including a photo of the phone box, where Arthur and Harry enter the Ministry of Magic.
