Other scenes for the movies were shot earlier this year, but filming in Manayunk got underway this week. This meant many residents in the area had to move their vehicles. The heavily traveled Green Lane is shut down until Friday.
"I hope the parking is going OK," Sandler said to the crowd.
In the movie co-produced by LeBron James, Sandler plays a fired basketball scout who discovers a basketball phenom while abroad and brings him back to America to prove they're both NBA-worthy.
A premiere date for the film has not yet been released.
