Local schools are cashing in on movies and tv shows


Metro Atlanta school systems are cashing in on Georgia’s growing film and tv production industry.

An 11Alive News analysis of figures from six counties shows Atlanta Public Schools were used the most for filming over the past two years.

The movie “Hidden Figures,” which is due out on Christmas Day, paid APS $90,000 to use two buildings, including the old Marshall Middle School.

Ice Cube’s “Fist Fight,” coming out next year, paid $70,000. “Spiderman: Homecoming” paid $17,000 to use Grady and Douglass High Schools. Over the last two years, APS has made $204.800 on movies and films.
