Old Detroit Metro terminal could become film set

ROMULUS (AP) -- The 51-year-old L.C. Smith Terminal at Detroit Metropolitan Airport could get a new life as a set for movies and TV shows.

The Detroit News reported Tuesday that producers and airport officials say the Smith Terminal is a moviemaker's dream. Airlines that use the Smith Terminal this month will begin flying out of the new North Terminal.

Wayne County Airport Authority spokesman Scott Wintner says the airport in Romulus is working to help attract productions.

The terminal would be attractive because it wouldn't have active passenger service or security concerns.

Filmmakers have been flocking to Michigan since April, when Gov. Jennifer Granholm signed into law a package of bills offering lucrative incentives to film companies that bring in their projects.
