McKinney Welcomes Your Filming Project!

McKinney is a popular filming venue because of our unique visual offerings. Our historic downtown, quaint commercial buildings, long-standing businesses and historic homes offer an attractive environment for filming. But that’s not all – Adriatica, our authentic Croatian village and our lush parks and open spaces also provide great possibilities for filmmakers.
