In the past year, three movies have been filmed in Lowell. Deb Belanger, of the Greater Merrimack Valley Visitor’s Bureau says the movie “The Invention of Lying” brought in $2 million to businesses in the region. She believes “The Fighter” will bring in between $2 million and $3 million to local businesses.
Eight movies will be filmed here in Massachusetts this summer. That surge follows the creation of Film Production Tax Credits. The Department of Revenue just released a study saying that from 2006 to 2008, movie productions pumped in $510 million to the local economy.
