Home to the jaw-dropping scenic beauty of the Niagara Falls with 4-6 million cubic feet of water rushing over the edges every minute of the day, Buffalo Niagara is a hot destination for domestic and international travelers alike. The region also has a rich screen history with projects such as The Natural, Planes Trains and Automobiles, and Buffalo 66 filming locally. Recent major studio features such as The Final Purge and Paramount’s A Quiet Place II have found a home in Buffalo Niagara thanks to its deep crew base and incredible locations.
