LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Unified School District has temporarily banned movie and TV filming on campuses after a report that some shoots disrupted activities and damaged school equipment.

Superintendent Ramon Cortines announced suspension of commercial filming on Thursday while the district investigates the issue.

The district has earned an estimated $10 million from filming over the past five years.

But KNBC-TV reports some productions caused parking problems for teachers and led to classes being relocated and sports practices being cancelled.

It also reports that a pornographic movie was filmed in 2011 at Hamilton High School, including a scene featuring public nudity in the school’s front parking lot.

The district says the production company violated terms of its filming agreement and is banned from using district facilities.
