Crowd of people filming in downtown Newmarket

​Just north of Hollywood North

With a focus on creative industries, Newmarket has become an in-demand destination for film and television productions. The Town is the perfect setting for both a quaint small-village (via historic Main Street) and a futuristic big city (seen through the lens of Southlake's iconic arch and walkway over Davis Drive). Hollywood movies and Canadian television productions have flocked to Newmarket for its beautiful scenery and reputation as an accommodating and affordable set location.

The following are big and small screen features filmed in Newmarket over the past five years:

Regression (2015) starring Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson
Carrie (2013) starring Julianne Moore and Chloë Grace Moretz
The Vow (2012) starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams
Dream House (2011) starring Daniel Craig and Naomi Watts
Repo Men (2010) starring Forest Whitaker and Jude Law
Flashpoint (2010) starring Amy Jo Johnson and Hugh Dillon

"(Newmarket) just looks so great through a lens," Mr. Hoddinott said when asked why he films in town. "It is just so picturesque." – Interview in the Newmarket Era
