WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Screen Gems Studio is offering weekend tours for guests to check out the entire studio including the set of Under the Dome.

Tour director Pamela Stilwell said the studio tours are also an opportunity to show guests an inside look at how film incentives benefit Wilmington.

"We're so excited to be able to offer these studio tours," said Stilwater. "We feel it's a great way to showcase all that we do here and gives our guests an opportunity to see firsthand the importance and the impact of the film incentive."

Tour-goers were excited at the prospect of getting a chance to see a set of their favorite show. Catherine Shottman looked forward to checking out the set of Under the Dome and hopes incentives will continue so she can see her favorite show come back to Wilmington.

"I was hoping Wilmington would offer more incentives so that more productions will come here" said Shottman. "It's money for us and I think it would be a good solution because they are going other places and we are losing."
