Chattanooga In The Movies

REPORTING: MICHAEL EDWARD MILLER

If you’re a movie buff, you know Water For Elephants was partially shot right here in the Chattanooga area.  It’s one of the most prominent films to have a Scenic City connection–but it’s not the first time Hollywood stars and major directors have come here.  Actually, more than 25 notable films were shot near Chattanooga or in North Georgia.

In this segment we talk about some of the most notable films shot in our area–films involving actors such as Mark Hamill, Dennis Quaid, Montgmery Clift and Jeff Bridges, as well as directors such as John Carpenter, George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola.

Local filmmakers Dave Porfiri and Barry Schuch join us to discuss Chattanooga in the movies.

The Rain People, from Francis Ford Coppola, was filmed partly in Chattanooga.

The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia was filmed in Chattanooga and Trenton.

Wild River was filmed in Cleveland, TN.
