About Film in Reading, PA.
25 – 30% Film Credit
Tucked deep in the center of Pennsylvania’s farmland, the Americana Region is a patchwork of crazy, cool country! A little slice of America that’s as American as baseball and apple pie, yet with a twist. You’ll find lots of antiques, craft brews and main streets right out of our traditional roots, living peacefully with world-recognized biking trails, drag strips, mountain lookouts, parks, rivers, lakes and Pennslyvania Dutch/German culture.
Our city, Reading and the county of Berks has a rich history and culture. In the 19th century, the city boasted the most profitable corporation in the world (Reading Railroad), which resulted in the building of large factories, mansions, city buildings, city streets filled with beautiful row homes, and a suburban area with centuries-old stone farmhouses, barns, and farmland.
Along with that came eclectic icons you won’t find anywhere else, like a Pagoda sitting atop Mt. Penn, a massive old factory turned art studios with over 30 resident fine artists and Daniel Boone’s home. You'll discover a mummy, Reading Railroad history, rare Tiffany glass items, a planetarium and an astounding collection of Old Masters paintings in our more than 30 museums. One even hosts a festival to reminisce World War II with encampments, planes and Big Bands all from that era.
We take great pride in our scenic roads, gently rolling hills, bold city sites and small towns. That’s why we provide filmmakers with a variety of excellent locations for film production. And, Reading is the fourth largest city in Pennsylvania, behind Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and Allentown but we have still kept our charm. Just for you!
