Hollywood East – Celebs Descend on Boston, MA

Boston IS Hollywood East

Boston IS Hollywood East

Boston, MA has quickly become The Hollywood of the East Coast.  Many of our clients have been asking, what are all these 18 wheelers parked around the Boston Common?  Who was that being followed by the Paparazzi on Newbury Street today?  The answer is very exciting.  Massachusetts is offering lucrative tax incentives to movie producers with the hopes it lures “A List” celebrities, high budget film productions, local job creation, and publicity that will make Boston known throughout the world as not only a charming city to visit, but also an exciting and vibrant place to live. Local, luxury condo buildings have been housing celebrities during their stays.  For obvious reasons, we cannot say who is currently staying where, but it is a safe bet that you will find an actor or two at properties like The Ritz Calrton Condos, Zero Marlborough, and The Mandarin Oriental .  The intended consequences of these incentives have become a reality. Dozens of movies(see below) have recently, and are currently being shot in the Bay State.

Perhaps more notably is the creation of Plymouth Rock Studios . They are pouring over $500 million into a new, state of the art, Green (We at LRG LOVE this), 240+ acre facility/community that will house sound stages, production lots, movie theaters, shopping, tours, and most importantly, 2,000+ new jobs for the Bay State.
