Gary, Ind. is turning a minus into a plus as Hollywood is now drawn to the city's blighted neighborhoods. The city is on track to host a record number of movie productions.

Gary played a prominent role in the transformers movie and other productions.

The city is renting out its neighborhoods as ready-made sets for $500 per day.
