Until the mid to late 90's

Until the mid to late 90's Wilmington WAS the 3rd largest film market in the Eastern Hemisphere. Over 4000 movies, tv movie of the week, miniseries and television episodes were shot in and around the Wilmington area (Charlotte along with dozens of other cities were used for location shots, but the production offices remainded in Wilmington). It wasn't until Canada started offering major incentive packages that most filming left the area, and with the cost of film making decreasing rapidly, it becomes much easier for a low budget film that would have in the past needed the resources and the man power that Wilmington offered to take their project anywhere they desire. So yes, Wilmington WAS the 3rd largest market at one time and for a long time, thanks to Frank Capra jr. RIP Frank. get your facts straight next time, there's a reason your nobody important
