Films that Used Federal Point for Location Shots

Oral History Committee – Ann Hertzer

Calling All Movie Buffs!

We are working on a COMPLETE list of films that used Federal Point for location shots. Here’s what Ann Hertzler has collected for Kure Beach so far.

Wilmywood, the Hollywood name for Wilmington, has produced more than 300 films since the 1980s. More than a dozen have featured Kure Beach.  Favorite areas to film have been around the pier and the secluded areas of Fort Fisher. Prime spots are the ocean, the ferry, the boat basin, and the Aquarium.

1980s Week End at Bernie’s

1993 Linda
1993 Love, Honor, & Obey: Last Mata Marriage
1993 Twilight Zone: The Theater

1995 To Gilian on her 37th Birthday
1995  Traveler

1996  Hurricane Bertha and Fran

1999 Hurricane Fran – Science Behind The Storm

2004 Loggerheads
2004 Woo on the Tape

Dawson’s Creek and One Tree Hill were TV series filming in the Kure Beach area.

Weekend at Bernies in the 80s and To Gilian on her 37th Birthday in the 90s both had an entire house built and then torn down.

We would also love to have a list of locals who appeared as extras as well as stories of how the films impacted the local area.
