Fodor's Southern California 2014
Warner Bros. Studios
Warner Bros. Studios Review
If you're looking for an authentic behind-the-scenes look at how films and TV shows are made, head to this major studio center, one of the world's busiest. After a short film on the studio's movies and TV shows, hop aboard a tram for a ride through the sets and soundstages of such favorites as Casablanca and Rebel Without A Cause. You'll see the bungalows where such icons as Marlon Brando and Bette Davis relaxed between shots, and the current production offices for Clint Eastwood and George Clooney. You might even spot a celeb or see a shoot in action—tours change from day to day depending on the productions taking place on the lot.
Tours are given at least every hour, more frequently from May to September, and last 2 hours and 25 minutes. Reservations are required, and advance notice is needed for people with mobility issues. Children under eight are not admitted. A five-hour deluxe tour costing $250 includes lunch and lets you spend more time on the sets, with more ops for behind-the-scenes peeks and star spotting.
