second line stages, green lantern

Anyone in hot anticipation of next summer’s superhero flick Green Lantern — starring Ryan Reynolds in the title role, as well as Peter Sarsgaard, Blake Lively, Taika Waititi, Mark Strong and Angela Bassett – might be interested to learn that the very same sound stage being used for the film happens to be legitimately “green” in more ways than just its title. Located in the heart of New Orleans’ Lower Garden District, the 220,000 square foot Second Line Stages facility is LEED Silver certified and boasts the following eco-friendly features:

A taxi garage was converted into three of Second Line Stages’ support structures as well as two sound stages and then augmented with the construction of a brand new third sound stage, office facility, and digital screening room. Overall, the multi-million dollar studio has rightfully achieved a superior environmental ranking due to its ability to conduct business in a cleaner and more eco-responsible manner, which is something that is practically nonexistent in Hollywood today.
