In 1984, famed film producer Dino DeLaurentiis built Wilmington NC’s movie studio now known as EUE / Screen Gems Studios. Since then, more than four hundred (400) film, television and commercial projects have been produced here. The quality and volume of the productions have earned Wilmington the monikers, Hollywood East and Wilmywood.
EUE / Screen Gems Studios maintains tremendous capacity to produce award-winning movies and television including ten state-of-the-art stages and a vast array of production equipment. The 50-acre full-service studio is one of the top filming facilities in the United States. The studio has attracted and developed a world-class film crew who enjoy living in Wilmington and The Beaches.
