Why Movies are Being Shot in Cleveland

With 3 major movies being filmed in Cleveland this summer – The AvengersFun Size and I, Alex Cross, and several smaller productions, Cleveland is suddenly home to a growing film industry.    Tax credits provided by the state of Ohio were the original reason producers started looking into the greater Cleveland area to shoot films.   But what they found here is an ideal location for filming movies.

Filming in Cleveland offers an authenticity you can’t get in L.A.   The area offers great urban architecture as well as beautiful landscapes outside the city.    Cleveland also offers a low cost of living making it more affordable to film here.
