History: The City purchased this historic black film studio on December 19, 2002. It is located in the heart of Old Arlington. The site was the location of Eagle Studios, predecessor of Norman Studios, and was built in 1916. The property consists of a production building, generator building, a small cottage for visiting actors, and a prop shed. The Flying Ace (1926) is the only Norman film to have survived over the years and was shot at the Jacksonville Studios. One print rests at the Black Film Center and another resides at the Library of Congress. Norman Studios is currently undergoing extensive renovation and will not open to the public until renovations are complete.
