Hollywood may cast Smith Terminal's sequel

By Nathan Hurst | The Detroit News | September 9, 2008

ROMULUS -- The final credits aren't yet rolling for the aged Smith Terminal at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

The dated structure, with its '50s-era control tower and dilapidated concourses, retires as an active passenger terminal Sept. 16. But some believe the Smith is slated for a sequel, this time starring as the nation's premier set for movies and TV shows featuring airport scenes.

And while many travelers think the aged terminal can't bow out soon enough, film producers and airport officials alike say the Smith is a moviemaker's dream.
