Bette Midler stars as a music teacher giving a singing lesson to a student in her apartment. She suddenly wins the lottery but quickly loses the ticket when it is swept out her window by a gust of wind and subsequently chases the ticket all over New York City.

The Lottery was shot on February 3, 1989, at Disney-MGM Studios on the New York City backlot set and it took a crew of over 100 people to produce.[1]

It was the first film to be completely filmed at the Disney-MGM Studios theme park.

It was used to demonstrate general filmmaking, the use of exterior sets and soundstage sets, special effects and stunts.
