The City of El Reno has seen a steady increase in film and television production in recent years. Since 2019, the community has welcomed a number of feature films, including “Thirteen Minutes”, “Stillwater”, “Sorority Sister Killer”, “Impropriety”, “Cheer For Your Life”, “How I Met Your Murderer” and most recently the Lionsgate films “The Unbreakable Boy” and “American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story”. Recognizing the value and economic impact of the film and television industry, the City of El Reno has become the first community to be officially certified as “film friendly” by the Oklahoma Film + Music Office (OF+MO) after completing the requirements of the agency’s Oklahoma Film Friendly Community Program.

From runways to a trolley on rails, this town has more options in location than initially, meets the eye. “El Reno has an amazingly scenic backdrop,” said El Reno Mayor Matt White. “When you combine that with our history city properties available for filming, we feel taking this next step just makes sense and will help us build an economically advantageous industry for our citizens.”
