Group talks about building a movie studio in Albany, Georgia


We’re used to seeing stars in our rural South Georgia skies, but if a proposed project goes through, Dougherty County will be seeing some other kinds of stars.

On Monday, June 5, 2017, members of the Georgia State African American Chamber of Commerce and the CEO of CineDome Studios Inc. stood in front of commissioners to discuss the possibility of bringing a state-of-the-art filming studio to Dougherty County.

“I think people in Georgia, film anyway, want to see this move out of the bigger cities,” CineDome Studios Inc. CEO Lydia McGee said.

McGee said Dougherty County is the perfect spot to house the project.

“Here, you have a wide variety of terrain as well as culture and other things that I think will bring people down,” McGee said.

The CEO said Hollywood filmmakers have their eyes on Georgia, but there’s one thing that the area is missing.

“They’d shoot down South more and like the area, the people, and the cost is helpful as well, but they don’t have a studio location,” McGee said.
