Jersey City to House Largest Film Studio in New Jersey

Cinelease Studios, a prominent film studio and production equipment company, will be opening New Jersey‘s largest studio located at 21 Caven Point Avenue in Jersey City.

About Cinelease, Inc. 

Cinelease Studios

There are two parts to Cinelease Inc. There’s the production equipment company that was founded in 1977 and provides lighting and grip equipment, power distribution, grip trucks, expendables, and sound stages to both small and large-scale productions. It has the largest lighting rental inventory in the US.

Then, there’s Cinelease Studios, which was created as a studio management division to cultivate a “flexible, cost-conscious environment for production companies to develop content,” according to the company’s website.

Cinelease Studios has locations in Georgia, New York, Pennsylvania, California, and now, New Jersey.

Expanding to Jersey City

In April 2021, the company announced on Instagram that it will be “pushing into new territory” with the new Caven Point studio in Jersey City, that we now discovered will be the state’s largest studio to boot.

Why Jersey City? “Location, Location, Location!”, according to Cinelease. The company said that Jersey City’s close proximity to New York City, Columbus Circle, the 8-mile SAG zone, and it being easily accessible by the PATH train, ferry, tunnels, and turnpike made it the perfect place to set up shop. Additionally, the NJ film production tax credit is guaranteed through 2028.

“Caven Point is the perfect space for keeping your production within one set of walls while allowing your team the ability to expand your production,” Cinelease states on the website.
