Residential Impacts

The attachment to the geography of a film location can create economic benefits. In some cases, a boom in real estate sales results. Internet sites link to real estate firms in various states and countries that feature locations used in movies. After the filming of The Witches of Eastwick in Massachusetts, realtors there saw an increase in business. The community of Nelson, in southeastern British Columbia, Canada saw a similar boom after the film Roxanne became a minor hit. A large number of upwardly mobile individuals have had their real estate decisions affected by key films.
