This 110-acre studio on the Valley-side of the Hollywood Hills has served as the home of Warner Bros. since 1928. Since then, the studio has hosted production on a seemingly endless list of iconic movies and TV shows, including Casablanca, Looney Tunes, Friends and Ellen. Today, you can tour the backlot and soundstages on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood.
Warner Bros.â€™ guided tram tour zips through the studioâ€™s sizeable footprintâ€”110 acres on the Valley-side of the Hollywood Hillsâ€”with about a dozen other passengers onboard. Itâ€™s an encyclopedic tour of all types of filming locations, with a journey through the backlotâ€™s city stand-ins, recognizable residential square and a jungle lagoon, as well as a stop on both single- and multi-camera sets. There's a museum-like presentation of picture cars, props and lighting throughout the various warehouses; in fact, thereâ€™s an actual museum midway through the tour as well as a behind-the-scenes look at production techniques in the interactive Stage 48: Script to Screen. Though you'll spend some time simply navigating the sprawling grid of soundstages, you'll still find plenty of memorable photo ops: a seat on the couch at Friends' Central Perk, an opportunity to mount a Harry Potter broomstick and the chance to come face to face with almost every Batmobile imaginable.
For fans of: Ellen, Conan, The Big Bang Theory, Pretty Little Liars, Friends, Harry Potter, Batman, Looney Tunes
You wonâ€™t find anywhere else: A dedicated studio museum, and by far the most to see on any studio tour.
Tip: Buckle in if you plan on leaning out the side of the tram for photosâ€”you donâ€™t want to become an involuntary stuntman.
