WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Just off Stratford Road on a recent afternoon, several men sat on the front porch of a rustic, wooden building, chatting among themselves and watching life go on around them.

Cigar smoke drifted along on a gentle breeze.

The men were customers at Twin City Cigar Co., a boutique cigar and pipe lounge on Mill Street, just off Stratford. John Anetrella opened the business, which focuses strictly on pipe tobacco and cigars, in January 2013. The lounge is housed in a building that was part of the mill village of Hanestown.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Some people in the film industry are afraid the General Assembly will cut North Carolina’s film incentive program, which would discourage Hollywood to come here.

Later this month, lawmakers plan to discuss whether or not to renew the program, which works as tax credit for filmmakers.

On May 14th, lawmakers plan to decide whether or not to renew the 25 percent film incentive, set to end January 2015.

Film makers have to spend at least $250,000 to qualify.

Nearly 4,000 people rely on the production jobs the film industry brings to the Triad.
On average, one to $8 million is spent in the local economy when a movie comes to town.
