Atlántida: Locación de Cine

Desde los años 40 se vienen filmando películas en Atlántida, producciones argentinas, norteamericanas y uruguayas han tenido como paisaje y protagonista distintos espacios de la ciudad.

Desde "La casta Susana", con Mirtha Legrand, hasta "Miami Vice", la playa y las construcciones costeñas han otorgado un set de rodaje realmente inspirador para realizadores y público. Sin duda la infraestructura y las bellezas de Atlántida permiten el feliz rodaje de films de las más variadas facturas.

Aquí verán fotos de algunos de los rodajes, seguramente faltan varios pero los podremos agregar si ustedes nos envían los registros.

Recientemente descubrimos a la gente de Uruguay desde lo alto quienes, como no podía ser de otra forma, han cubierto Atlántida desde el cielo.
