Cover Charge


The Tennessee Film Commission wants to attract more filmmakers to the Volunteer State. And it says a $2 per admission tax on strip clubs would do just that. The money would be used to provide incentives to filmmakers, but only if they promise to make movies that show women, and the great state of Tennessee, in a positive light. Critics say the plan would tax one industry to subsidize another and get government bureaucrats involved in decisions about which movies will be made.
