13 Reasons Why Atlanta is Now A Film Capital

Last week, Netflix premiered the new series based on Jay Asher's popular young adult novel Thirteen Reasons Why.

Production code signs labeled PSI have been seen near Fort Gillem and near Oglethorpe University.  As Atlanta grows as a…continue reading →

Atlanta-filmed Spider-Man: Homecoming and Baby Driver Release Trailers

AMT Turns 5

  If Atlanta Movie Tours were a human, it would be a fun-loving, inquisitive, and compassionate child getting ready to start Kindergarten. It would be jumping up and down at the prospect of starting a new chapter and getting to do things it's never done before. Its parents would be telling it to calm down and take a deep breath before it leaves the house to explore a new world and make new friends. But in Atlanta Movie Tours' five years of life, it has already had so many amazing experiences and learned…continue reading →

And the Oscar Goes to…

It's no secret that the Academy Awards this year were full of surprises. And to keep up with the drama, some of our Insiders even watched the Oscars on one screen while trying to pay attention to The Walking Dead at the same time, needless to say, when the Oscars drew to a close, it was a good thing that The Walking Dead had already gone off-air.  If you haven't heard by now, the film Moonlight took home the Oscar for Best Picture, but not after La La Land was announced in its…continue reading →

Football Season Is Over

"Rise Up" was the marketing tagline for the Atlanta Falcons as they made their way to Super Bowl LII, and rising up was exactly what the Falcons did in Houston this past weekend. They rose to the occasion and played the closest game in Super Bowl history--the first to go into overtime. And while the Falcons lost to the Patriots, this will not be the last time Atlanta is in the Super Bowl spotlight. In 2019, the 53rd Super Bowl is set to be hosted in Atlanta right near Atlanta Movie Tours' neighborhood of…continue reading →

Filming Soon!

It's becoming increasingly obvious that Atlanta is the place to be for movie and television shoots. In the little over a year that I have been here, countless movies and shows have shot on my college's campus and in the surrounding areas. Just the other day, I was rerouted leaving my nannying job because "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising" starring Zac Efron and Selena Gomez was filming in the subdivision where I was working. But there are plenty of other movies that are about to start filming around town in the next few months.…continue reading →

We are still at 327 Nelson St. SW, but you may notice a few things that are different about our shop.
