New Louisiana Film Museum to Open

The Baton Rouge Business Report is reporting that a new museum dedicated to the over 400 films featuring Louisiana as their backdrop will open next month at the Riverwalk in New Orleans. The Louisiana Film Museum is a labor of love for local movie buffs who wanted to share their collections of memorabilia so they got together and created the museum. It will feature film clips, educational classes, posters, props, costumes and more and they've got a pretty interesting website too. It offers a huge listing of all Louisiana major motion pictures, documentaries and tv movies along with plot lines and their casts arranged by the year it came out. So far they have listed everything from 1908 - 1996 and it's a pretty impressive list of actors and films.....check it out here.
