Goldcrest Post, an independently-owned feature and episodic postproduction facility that currently maintains bases in New York and London, plans to open a third location at Lionsgate Studios Yonkers, just outside New York City.

Goldcrest plans to open in September as a full service facility that will include a theater equipped with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision for screenings, color grading sessions and sound mixing. For launch, Goldcrest is also constructing an ADR room and offices for needs such as dailies, editing and visual effects. The site will be networked to Goldcrest’s base in Manhattan.

It’s part of an agreement with Great Point Studios, which owns and operates Lionsgate Studios. In all, the $500 million studio complex encompasses 1 million square feet of space that includes stages, offices and backlots. Tenants include production/distribution company Mediapro and Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communication.

Goldcrest Post managing director Domenic Rom describes the venture as an opportunity to be part of a “new era” in film and TV production in New York. “When I toured Lionsgate Studios, I was impressed by its design, scope and concept,” he says.

Goldcrest has worked on features such as Celine Song’s Oscar winning drama “Past Lives” and series such as “Severance,” “Tokyo Vice,” “And Just Like That” and “Billions.”

The team reasons that its presence at the Studio could benefit productions seeking to take advantage of New York State’s tax credit program, which Goldcrest suggests could go as high as 45% for qualifying productions based in certain parts of Upstate New York as well as Buffalo in Western New York where Great Point Studios also has stages.
