|PONTIAC MI SCENE FROM RED DAWN|
This one is from the town I was living in at the time they shot this movie.
The WKC is a crafts store on Saginaw street in downtown Pontiac, MI.
For a while, Michigan was giving good deals to movie makers when they made their movies in Michigan.
A movie studio was actually built in this town that was one of the Michigan towns decimated by the GM bankruptcy. OZ the Great and Powerful was partially filmed there.
It was looking as something very positive in a very negative situation.
The movie business in Michigan has all but left now that the new Republican Governor Rick Snyder has decided it is a waste of money.
