You Ought to Be in Pictures - Starring North Carolina!

The first major exhibit about the state's role in the film industry. The NC Museum of History presents this blockbuster exhibit celebrating North Carolina's films, television shows, cast members and production crews. The museum is a Smithsonian Affiliate. Now through Sept. 6, 2015, see costumes and props from movies and television shows: "Bull Durham," "Last of the Mohicans," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," "Dawson's Creek," "Sleepy Hollow" and dozens more. Learn how the Tar Heel State became one of the nation's top film and television production locations and home to the largest film studio outside of California ─ EUE/Screen Gems Studios in Wilmington. Did you know more than 3,000 films and television programs have been made in NC, beginning in the early 1900s with silent movies that were shot in western North Carolina?

The interactive exhibit showcases hundreds of film-related items from the 1900s to the present. Among them are 13 artifacts on loan from the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

North Carolina's movie scene changed dramatically in the 1980s, when producer Dino De Laurentiis arrived to film "Firestarter," based on a Stephen King novel. He liked the area so much that he decided to build a studio in Wilmington, thus launching the path to "Hollywood East." Since then, hundreds of major motion pictures, independent films, made-for-TV movies, television shows, and documentaries have been filmed across the state. Leonardo's mask from the 1990 movie "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," filmed mainly in Wilmington.

So much to see
- A letter jacket, cheerleading outfit, scripts and more from the 1998-2003 television series "Dawson's Creek," the first series to occupy multiple soundstages at EUE/Screen Gems Studios.

Ricky Bobby's No. 26 Wonder Bread race car from the 2006 movie "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," featuring scenes shot at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Rockingham Speedway.

A costume worn by Jennifer Lawrence, who portrayed "Katniss" in the 2012 movie "The Hunger Games," filmed in western North Carolina.

Visitors to Starring North Carolina! also can explore the history of early filmmaking and learn about the many ways North Carolinians have watched and continue to experience movies.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
