State tax incentives for the film industry continue to draw big, box-office names to make movies here, but there’s long been something missing: a sound stage. Now, a company called New England Studios has unveiled a massive sound stage complex in the northwest suburbs, with plans to expand.
From Hollywood to … Devens? Huh?
A former army base about 45 minutes from Boston, Devens is home to leafy green woods, and now, a massive new building. It looks like an upscale warehouse and sits on a sprawling, 15-acre lot.
Inside, it’s a nearly sound-proof studio, with soaring white, insulated walls.
