Louisiana Film Museum
Background on The Museum

The Louisiana Film Museum (Federal Tax I.D. #27-0163361) is a special place where interested consumers can visit and learn more about the history of movies that have been produced in the State of Louisiana. 

 

Since 1898, when American Mutoscope and Biograph Co. first started producing films in Louisiana, over 600 major motion pictures, short films, documentary shorts, television series and music videos have been produced using our beautiful State as the backdrop, and more than 180 currently in production or planned for production through 2011.

 

There is a very long list of major motion picture and television stars that have played their role in contributing to Louisiana’s film industry.  Some of these stars include Bette Davis, Henry Fonda, Paul Newman, Marlon Brando, Denzel Washington, John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Roger Moore, Julia Roberts, Dennis Hopper, Cicely Tyson, Elvis Presley, Dennis Quaid, John Goodman, Jessica Lange, Richard Pryor, Jackie Gleason, James Spader, Dolly Parton, Susan Sarandon, Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Costner, Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Yul Brenner, David Niven, Jimmy Stewart, James Mason, Brad Pitt, Charles Bronson and Darryl Hannah to name just a few.

 

The Louisiana Film Museum's permanent display features a time-line of each of the major films produced in Louisiana, along with still photographs and cinema posters of the majority of these films.  In the near future we plan of adding a computer kiosk with actual video footage and a wide-screen for actual movies.

 

The Museum also features a display of movie scripts, actual props and costumes that will change on a quarterly basis, keeing the Museum fresh with new pieces.

 

The Museum is fast becoming an exciting destination for tourists during the day.

 

In the near future, the Museum will act as a classroom for local area students interested in learning more about the role that Louisiana has played in the history of film making. The Museum will also work with local area schools to encourage students to participate in annual film making projects.

 

In addition, the Museum is opening it's doors as a unique venue for private and corporate events during evening hours.

 

The Museum is using this web site to share the history and contribution that the State of Louisiana has made to the film industry over the last century, as well as to promote Louisiana as a business-friendly, film industry destination.
