The state of Georgia is the new go-to place for filming, especially because we offer a little bit of everything. Rome and Floyd County has a good share of filming as well. Here are a few of the most iconic movie and television projects that were filmed in the area.
Constantine (2014) – Berry College
The television reboot of the DC Comics’ Constantine was filmed at the historic Old Mill, the English Gothic Ford buildings and on the main campus near Victory Lake. Remember the Titans (2000) was also filmed at these gorgeous campus buildings.
Allegiant (2016) – Lindale Mill
Allegiant, part of the Divergent series, had parts filmed at the Lindale Mill. Fun fact: directors were so pleased with the filming experience, they changed the original script to say the “Lindale Mission” after the Lindale Mill where they filmed.
Identity Thief (2013)
The hit comedy had several scenes filmed in Rome along North Broad and Turner McCall Blvd.
Sweet Home Alabama (2002)
The iconic Oak Hill & Martha Berry Museum was Reese Witherspoon’s cousin’s home and where she pretended she lived to impress the media. The home is open to the public for tours.
Need for Speed (2014)
This high octane thriller featured select scenes along the Rome Bypass and Myrtle Hill Cemetery.
The Following (2013)
Starring Kevin Bacon, the pilot of this television series was filmed in the Green Hall on Berry’s campus. Many of Berry’s students were background extras during the episode. How’s that for six degrees of separation?
The Originals (2016)
In the spinoff series of The Vampire Diaries, the Kingfisher Trailhead and Bob Moore Bridge was one of the filming locations for the upcoming season of The Originals.
Good Eats with Alton Brown (2006)
Cave Spring’s namesake cave was featured in the episode “Water Works I” in the popular Food Network television series, during which Alton Brown talks about where people get drinking water from in different areas.
Dance of the Dead (2008)
A zombie comedy where on the night of the big High-School Prom, the dead rise to eat the living, and the only people who can stop them are the “losers” who couldn’t get dates to the dance. The famous Claremont House was featured.
Casting Crowns – “Does Anybody Hear Her” (2009)
The music video for Casting Crowns’ “Does Anybody Hear Her” was filmed almost entirely in Rome and Berry College, featuring landmarks such as the Clocktower, Barnwell Chapel and Ford Reflection Pools.

You left out Dutch with Ed O’Neil, Mosquito Coast with Harridon Ford. Gregory Hines made a TV movie there also. The son from Martied with Children made a movie at Berry College also.
One summer we had Harrison Ford, Ed O’Neil and his tv “son” in Rome all at the same time!
We highlighted some of the most recognized and recent movies filmed here. The link at the bottom of the article show an entire list of all the movies/shows filmed in the area.
Perfect Harmony was another film that used a lot of Rome extras. It too was filmed at Berry.
Double McGuffen( Ernest Borgnine and Ellie Summers) at Darlington during the 70’s, Perfect Harmony(Peter Scalari and David Faustino) for the Disney Channel at Berry and the old city pool on West 3rd. That makes two stars from Married with Children with Ed O’Neil filming Dutch at Foster’s Mill store.
William Hardin mentioned the double mcguffin. It was a pretty good movie and the locker room scene featured a bunch of the Darlington football players (David akins, Joe Taylor, Thomas Reese, mike Mathis, Jim ward etc.)
