Hollywood Studio Tours

Moon Los Angeles, 1st edition

THERE ARE MINI Hollywoods all over the planet these days, with sound stages turning out productions for newcomers like Amazon and Netflix, but the Hollywood in southern California remains the biggest of them all—and is still aglitter with the stardust of more than a century of movie magic.

The 1st edition of Moon Los Angeles lists four historic studios that give tours:

Paramount Pictures Studios, 5515 Melrose Avenue, Hollywood. “Has a great tour (with a VIP option). This is where critically-acclaimed movies such as True Grit and The Fighter were filmed.” www.paramountstudiotour.com

Warner Bros. Studios, 3400 W. Riverside Drive, Burbank. “Offers a fun and colorful tour, including a gigantic prop room where you can view props and costumes from memorable movies and TV shows; shows filmed here include Friends, Gilmore Girls, and Big Bang Theory.” www.wbstudiotour.com

Universal Studios Hollywood, 100 Universal City Plaza, Universal City. “To see the Bates Motel from Psycho and the shark from Jaws take the studio tour, which is included in the entrance fee to the theme park.” www.universalstudioshollywood.com

Sony Studios (formerly MGM), 10202 W. Washington Boulevard, Culver City. The place to go “if you want to see Dorothy’s yellow-brick road…Reservations are required.” www.sonypicturesstudiostours.com
