PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pittsburgh company is launching a new bus tour that will highlight the city's history in movies and television.

"Lights, Camera, Pittsburgh!" is scheduled to launch May 31, and has the support of the region's tourism agency, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (http://bit.ly/1rPEcCk ) reports Saturday.

While it is better known as Steel City, Pittsburgh and nearby areas been the backdrop for films including The Deer Hunter, Flashdance, Night of the Living Dead, The Dark Knight Rises, The Silence of the Lambs, and Jack Reacher.

The tours are being run by a division of the Pittsburgh Transportation Group. Popcorn will be provided and buses will stop so riders can get off and visit shooting locales.
