Each year, more than half-a-million passengers pass through Shreveport Regional Airport. Now, one of the first things they’ll see when they arrive are framed movie posters — depicting many of the movies that have been shot here since 2005.
Interim Airports Director Bill Cooksey says twenty-six framed movie posters are being placed in the airport’s concourses and the pedestrian crosswalk bridge at the top of the escalators. They depict movies like “The Guardian,” “Drive Angry,” and “Battle: Los Angeles.” Convention and Tourist Bureau President Stacy Brown says it was a logical progression from “Artport” — which depicts the work of local artists. Bossier City Film Commissioner Pam Glorioso says the movie and film industry has had a billion-dollar economic impact on this area since 2005.
