film in Anaconda, Mt

Consider filming in Anaconda, Montana. Anaconda, the state’s “Smelter City,” was founded by Copper King Marcus Daly. The smelter of Anaconda just west of Butte, gained fame as the processor for the ore being extracted from the Richest Hill. When considering Anaconda as a filming destination, it may help to get a feel for town.

Today, that smelter stack still dominates the Anaconda skyline and you can still see the tallest masonry structure and chimney of any kind in the world. Anaconda is a charming town working to revitalize their streets while supporting local businesses. The town features a variety of Victorian architecture in addition to intriguing Art Deco style structures. Multiple community parks and a Jack Nicklaus golf course provide ample green space. In the vicinity, you can find access to public lands that include Lost Creek State Park with a waterfall and Georgetown Lake. The 1880s Gunslinger Gulch dude ranch, Discovery Ski Area and Bike Park, and the Montana Zipline Company have brought increased interest to the area.
