Request #19-5573

Under the Louisiana Public Records Act § 44:1 et seq., I am requesting an opportunity to inspect or obtain copies of public records showing a list of what movie/television/video productions have paid to use the former site of the Six Flags Amusement Park in New Orleans East to shoot productions there since the facility was abandoned in 2005. I’d like the name of the media company, the amount of money they paid for the usage, the dates when they shot the production there and the name of the movie/TV show/media production they shot there.

If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me if the cost will exceed $25. However, I would also like to request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to the public’s understanding of whether this abandoned site is generating money for the city.
