Dayton’s newest venue will pull back its curtains for an exclusive sneak peek at FilmDayton’s 10th anniversary celebration.
On Thursday, Sept. 27th from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at The Grande Hall at Liberty Tower, FilmDayton will host a mixer-style celebration on what served as the set of Robert Redford’s “The Old Man and The Gun.”
While the venue is still under construction, this sneak peek will give guests a chance to stand where Robert Redford did, enjoy appetizers on the Mezzanine where Tom Waits stood lookout, or have a cocktail in the bank vault where Casey Affleck investigated the robbery.

Created in 2008, FilmDayton's first victory was helping the state pass a competitive film tax incentive in 2009, which would help attract film projects to Ohio. FilmDayton offers concierge services to productions that include permitting, permissions, crew recruitment and location scouting for productions to drive economic development for our nine county region.
FilmDayton has been successful in bringing films like:
Miles Ahead: an exploration of the life and music of Miles Davis
