“Home to the Northern Ireland film industry”
Titanic Studios, set on an 8 acre site five minutes' drive from central Belfast in the historically renowned Titanic Quarter,comprise the original Paint Hall studio and two new purpose-built sound stages, the Hurst and MacQuitty stages, which form the new extension. The Paint Hall was used from July-October 2007 by Walden Media and Playtone Productions for the children’s fantasy sci-fi adventure film City of Ember and by Universal Pictures from July-November 2009 for the medieval comedy Your Highness. It was also home to seasons 1-4 of HBO’s Game of Thrones from 2010-14, while the fifth season will film in summer 2014. Containing four 16,000ft² “cells” which are set out in a square and connected by an internal road and streets, each cell is 90ft tall and has one 3ft thick external “wall” that is actually a 75ft tall door. None of the cell ceilings is external and the building is “double-skinned” thereby reducing noise pollution. The facility also offers a suite of offices, toilets, five dedicated workshops, a “green room” and has its own internal electrical substation which provides 110v, 240v and 3 phase power to the whole building.
