Here we go, with the most filmed locations for movies and TV in each New England state. Do you think you know?
I remember learning in a film class in college at Syracuse University that cinema first came to fruition in 1895 in Paris, France. But let's be honest, even though it was born there, Hollywood is the nurturing hometown where it grew up and thrives to this day.
The Hawaiian Islands website says it best, that Hollywood built a city of studios that could double for any place on Earth and beyond when cinema first started out. With the growth of the industry, movie and television show locations became mobile around the country and the world.
Now it may seem random that an airline website is a source for this article, right? But Hawaiian Airlines is really into conducting travel studies that include a myriad of fun facts, including the most filmed locations for movies and television shows. When it comes to New England and beyond, Hawaiian Airlines says it analyzed data from the movie website IMDb to find the location in each state with the most film credits.
