    Miami in the Movies


    Miami has a rich and unique relationship with the big screen and Hollywood, which dates back decades. Not only is southern Florida’s most bustling metropolis famous the world over thanks to films like the 1924 silent classic “Miami”, the hit TV show “Dexter”, and both the TV and film versions of “Miami Vice”, but Hollywood literally comes to Miami on a regular basis. And when it does, it brings its revenue with it.

    Miami & The Oscars

    When “The Godfather: Part II”, which has a few very important scenes filmed in the Miami area, won 6 Oscars, it brought a lot of attention to our fair city.  Movie tourism is a very real and powerful thing. When films show off a city, fans want to visit, especially when those films show off how beautiful the city is and how many glorious beaches are within easy driving distance.

    The Miami Entertainment Complex

    This 70,000 square-foot municipally owned production complex will feature two 10,000+ square-foot sound stages with 50-foot ceilings, gaming and 3D animation suites, a digital imaging motion capture studio, and tens of thousands of square feet of offices and storage.

    Factors that Further Improve Miami Living

    There are a few more factors that benefit from the film industry in Miami:

    • Celebrities in Residence
    • Employment Opportunities and Growth
    • Economic Impact
    • Appeal of Tourism

    The film industry has already impacted Miami in a hugely positive way. We’re excited to see how it helps our beautiful city grow and develop. You can read more about each of these in the full blog post. READ MORE at the Sunny Isles Miami Real Estate Blog
