Hill Theatre Studio
35 West Broad St. Paulsboro NJ 08066
This is one of the only studios in the Tri-state area. They have done Reebok commercials with Allen Iverson, the makeout rain scene for Kevin Smith’s “Chasing Amy”, and they just did the rain for Nicolas Cage’s new film “Atlantis”. The studio used to be one of the oldest movie theatres in South Jersey, although the seats have been ripped out, but the old movie theatre lobby still exists. The film will be projected on a thirty foot high seamless green screen that will be painted white for the best projection.

Nice description from http://www.kphat.com/john_premiere.html
