Katie Edwards from the North Carolina Museum of History will present Starring North Carolina! – a program that spotlights many of the films and television programs that have been made in North Carolina, beginning in the early 1900s with silent movies that were shot in the state’s western region. North Carolina’s movie scene changed dramatically in the 1980s when producer Dino De Laurentiis arrived here to film Firestarter. He liked the area so much that he decided to build a studio in Wilmington, thus launching the path to “Hollywood East.” Since then, hundreds of major motion pictures, independent films, made-for-TV movies, television shows, and documentaries have been filmed across the state.
