Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

June 26, 2017 - CineDome Studios Inc. and the Georgia State African American Chamber of Commerce met with Dougherty County commissioners last week to discuss what could be a multi-million dollar investment in that county for a new film studio.

The company, CineDome Studios, Inc. envisions a movie studio lot that will feature a dome structure for its soundstage. Led by CEO Lydia McGee, she told Dougherty County commissioners that this would be the first dome-shaped studio in the U.S.  The company is looking at several locations in the county, but “especially the Lockett Station area.”

McGee said the dome would be about 120,000 sq. ft. and stand approximately 60 feet high, and that the dome shape improves sound quality in post-production.  It also reduces cooling and heating costs, she said,

Southwest Georgia has not had the same level of investment by film companies as is taking place in Atlanta and Savannah. 

But McGee told the Commissioners that they were attracted to Dougherty County because it was both easily accessible to other parts of the state and neighboring states, without the traffic of the Atlanta area. And, there was a large selection of terrains in the county. 

Her company is now meeting with investors, and continuing the process of looking at property opportunities. If funded, she estimated they could be operational in one year.

“We have a state of the art, efficient and extraordinary experience waiting for all of the film, television, streaming, documentary, music videos and others who want this,” McGee posted on the company’s Facebook page last week.
