Abstract:
The way film and movie theater experience has changed over the last ten years with new technology is explored. Jim Carol of Durham’s Carolina Theater explains how the changes have affected art house cinemas and smaller local theaters. These theaters have struggled as studios produced large-budget movies and release them only to multiplex or Imax theaters. The way films are distributed have also affected smaller theaters and many like Chapel Hill’s Varsity Theater or the Galaxy Cinema in Cary have either closed or are changing their business models to adapt.

Abstract:
The state of film production in North Carolina is getting better. Direct spending on film in the state is expected to be almost six times what it was in 2010 (75 million to 450 million). Major films like The Hunger Games, Iron Man 3 and TV shows Homeland, Revenge, and Hart of Dixie are currently filming in North Carolina or plan to film in North Carolina in the next year. Wilmington and Charlotte are major film production areas. The success of the industry is credited to Governor Perdue and the legislature for offering new film incentives in 2011 which have attracted new films.

Abstract:
North Carolina Film Office Director Aaron Syrett discusses challenges facing the regional film industry. The state legislature has approved an incentives package to help revitalize the state’s film industry, but film industry strikes are slowing production. Reality television shows have forced television movies off of the air and many of those movies were made in Wilmington, NC. Additionally, fewer television shows are being filmed in the state. Syrett does believe that NC has the potential to become a major hub for independent film making.

The history of the Blount Street neighborhood and its recent redevelopment are described. The neighborhood is one of the oldest in Raleigh with many different styles of architecture including examples of Tudor, Second Empire, and Queen Anne architecture.
