Filmmaker pays Gary $1,250 to film Jackson scenes :: Lake County :: Post-Tribune

Filmmaker pays $1,250 to film Jackson scenes :: Lake County :: Post-Tribune: "GARY -- Filmmaker Spike Lee paid Gary $1,250 to film scenes for a documentary outside the boyhood home of the late pop star Michael Jackson last week, a city official said.

By bringing his film crew to Gary, Lee became among the first filmmakers subjected to new permit fees approved in September by the Gary City Council.
Meanwhile Sarita Stevens, a spokeswoman for Gary Community School Corp., confirmed that the West Side Theatre Guild received $3,000 it was promised after New Line Cinema filmed its latest 'Nightmare on Elm Street' movie in Gary.

That deal was made before the new permit fees were created. Stevens said the check came from the city of Gary, though."
