Tyler Perry has opened a new movie and television studio in Atlanta, Georgia.

Tyler Perry Studios opening ceremony took place on Saturday with R&B singer Mary J Blige entertaining the audience, which included celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, Will Smith, Whitney Houston, Sidney Poitier,  Hank Aaron and Forest Whitaker.

The new multimillion-dollar studio is housed on 30 acres in southwest Atlanta , and contains over 200,000 square feet of studio and office space.  It is located in an area which was once home to Delta Airlines finance, reservation and computer center.

Perry had considered leaving Atlanta after neighbors complained about the noise and traffic in his old studio location near downtown.

"I was thinking about leaving at one point, but this is home for me," Perry told reporters.

Perry will shoot his TBS sitcoms "House of Payne" and "Meet the Browns" at the new Tyler Perry Studios.

I'll bet ( if I was a betting woman) you don't check these comments. I have been looking for you for quite some time. If you recognize my name please call or just come by. Never met you or received anything. I think I know how it all happened. Daphne Danette Binion-McDowell

Hi, I work at a school with teens who have an emotional behavior disorders in Lawrenceville Ga. I was wondering if you could bring your message to our school. There are so many young black teens who need to know that they are in charge of their destiny. If you will be in town the graduation is May 26, 2010. You can email me and I'll send you my number. Thanks so much!!

hello, tyler perry. i am so proud to hear you are doing another movie. i have seen all the movies and plays, and they are awesome. i am singer and i act also i am a comedian, i believe in god and in myself. a lot of people have talent, but we all have to be real and believe in our self and believe in god. i have a video of myself on youtube.com, go to how to broadcast your own video, then go to kims no more rain. i am the first video you will see, i live for god i breathe for god and i have faith in my god. that my dreams will come true. because, you said something on your play. and this is so true, you can have leaves and branches, but if you do not have roots with your life and what you want in your life, you will not grow. that is what i got out of that message. keep up the awesome, work and god bless you with all your endeavors!!!!!!! kimberlynn
