Productions

 

There have been many blockbuster films made at Longcross Studios since it opened in January 2006. Most films are made across a number of locations and it is rare that a complete film will be made in a single studio location. Longcross has been successful in attracting these blockbuster films because of the space available and the facilities on the site.

A key feature of Longcross Studios is its flexibility in allowing producers and directors to modify stages and facilities to meet their specific needs.
