Lights, Camera, Action! Norman Studios Exhibit & Programming

Norman Studios logo with camera operator and camera

Don’t miss this traveling exhibit that chronicles the story of one of the nation’s first motion picture studios to produce all African-American cast films. Learn how Jacksonville was at one time considered the “Winter Film Capital of the World,” what actors—you’ll be surprised—made their debuts, and why the film industry left Jacksonville for the west coast—Hollywood.
