BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB)- Celtic Media Centre has boasted the largest film studio in Louisiana for nearly 10 years and nearly two-thirds of the 30 acre facility is currently not in Baton Rouge city limits.
"The dividing line could actually be Celtic Drive," said Patrick Mulhearn, Director of Studio Operations at Celtic Media.
Mulhearn says running the studio with parts inside city limits and most outside already presents plenty of challenges but adds operating in both Baton Rouge and St. George could present financial issues as well.
"We are concerned with being in a whole other city. No one knows what the tax rate will be for that city so again from our standpoint, we'd like to be in one city and that city would be Baton Rouge," added Mulhearn.
Lionel Rainey is the spokesperson for the Committee to Incorporate the city of St. George and says his group has no problem with any business that would rather remain connected to Baton Rouge instead of moving into what would become St. George.
