Savannah in the Movies

kathleen Dupuis - Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Everyone loves a good movie.  They have the ability to take their audience into another world.  Instantly you leave your world and are taken on a new adventure.  Movies are fascinating pieces of art.  Movie-makers have seen the beauty of Savannah and want that in their films.  In fact, Savannah is welcoming Medient Studios who will be building a $90 million studio in our backyard.   Savannah’s unique look makes it perfect for filming.

Not until the 1970’s did movies become popular to film in Savannah.  One of the first movies filmed here was Cape Fear in 1962.  Savannah has actually been featured in over 46 films.  Some of the more popular movies are as follows: The Conspirator, The Last Song, The Legend of Bagger Vance, The General’s Daughter, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Something to Talk About, and Forrest Gump.  
The beautiful scenery that Savannah had to offer these films are historic downtown, the beach, train stations, parks, rivers, The Globe, the Talmadge Bridge, and historic forts.  Its all waiting here for you.  Come experience Savannah to see where these stories told or to make a story yourself.
