SHREVEPORT (AP).- Posters from at least 26 movies made in the Shreveport-Bossier City area are being shown off at the Shreveport Regional Airport.
Movies filmed in the area since 2005 include "The Guardian," ''Drive Angry" and "Battle Los Angeles." The airport itself has been used as a location for more than a dozen movies.
"One of the top questions you get, whether it's local or visitors, is 'What are some of the movies that have been filmed here?' said Kelly Wells of the local tourism office.
Shreveport Film Commissioner Arlena Acree said people are always telling her, "I didn't know that was shot here!" Now they'll see the posters and know, she said.
She and other area officials featured some of the movie posters at the recent Association of Film Commissioners International Conference in Los Angeles.
"People were like 'Oh my gosh, you did 'Battle Los Angeles' there?' or 'I didn't know that was shot in Shreveport.' They were just floored by that," Acree said.
The current exhibit is just a start, said Shreveport Airport Authority head Mark Crawford: "There's been more than 200 films done here, so as the tourist bureau gets more posters, we'll continue to add and grow the display."
