Movies at Agnes Scott

Agnes Scott’s exceptional Gothic style architecture, traditional interior design and vast green space make it a popular site for location scouts in Georgia’s thriving film and television industry.

Starting with “A Man Called Peter” in 1955, 50 productions, including 20 major motion pictures have used Agnes Scott College as a filming location. Other notable films include “Scream 2,” which was considered the teenage movie of the late ’90s; “Fried Green Tomatoes,” an iconic Southern movie; “The Blind Side,” featuring Sandra Bullock as lead actress; “Confirmation,” the political drama about Anita Hill, starring Kerry Washington; “Life of the Party,” a college comedy featuring Melissa McCarthy; and “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” starring Oprah Winfrey.
