LOS ANGELES (AP) - Six years after shutting its doors due to movie production slowing in the area, one of Hollywood’s largest prop houses is reopening.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/1E67KI6 ) that 20th Century Props is reopening at a new location in Van Nuys as production of film and TV shows in Southern California picks up.

Officials say that expanded tax credits have lured four out-of-state TV shows to Los Angeles. Eight studio films were selected for tax breaks as well.

20th Century Props reopens next Thursday, and though the return is a good sign for the industry, owner Harvey Schwartz isn’t betting too big. The new property will be 18,000 square feet and house about 3,000 props, compared to 90,000 at the old location.
