"Los Angeles is attracting the biggest productions.
Its (LA) expenditures were more than ten times larger
than those of New York, the second largest
center, and have reached $31 billion in 2000 .

Do you seriously think that LA, a city one thousand times the importance of ABQ, is going to let one of it's biggest and probably most historic industries move to ABQ?? Come on I mean there are organizations here designated to keeping the industry here and the city will do anything it can to save a multi-billion dollar industry.

Did i say Albuquerque was going to take over or hollywood was going to move to albuquerque? No. So read all of the posts and visit albuquerque then you can talk all you want..what i said was film companies are building movie studios here which is nice, this is an arguement between me and him which you have no part of so who honestly cares..

Its mind boggling how anyone can beleive that aint it? On top of that, the fact that Los Angeles/Hollywood naturally attracts people. Especially to people with alot of money, i.e., tv/movie stars.
Not putting a stink on ABQ, but I wouldnt hold my breath if I were you.

Not everyone is going crazy, only the 5 LA trolls who no one cares about. I am glad Albuquerque is getting in on film action. It is a nicer place than LA
