Fodor's Southern California 2014
Warner Bros. Studios
Warner Bros. Studios Review
This major studio center wins hands down for the most authentic behind-the-scenes look at how films and TV shows are made.
You start with a short film on Warner Bros. movies and TV shows, then hop into 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 icons such as Marlon Brando and Bette Davis spent time 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.
Reservations are required. Call at least one week in advance and ask about provisions for people with disabilities; children under 8 are not admitted. Tours are given at least every hour, more frequently from May to September, and last 2 hours and 15 minutes. A five-hour deluxe tour, $250 including a VIP lunch, allows visitors to spend more time on the sets, with more ops for behind-the-scenes peeks and star spotting.
