SONY PICTURES STUDIOS TO OFFER TWILIGHT TOURS
On Thursday Evenings throughout the summer
Culver City, CA - Sony Pictures Studios announced that the popular Twilight Tours of the historic studio will begin on Thursday, June 24th and run every Thursday evening through October 28th.
“From The Wizard of Oz to Spider-Man 3, this is the lot where dreams are made,” said Pam Byrne, Director of Studio Services. “Now people can enjoy warm summer evenings by experiencing the glamour and history of Sony Pictures Studios. Our Twilight Tours offer the perfect opportunity to treat family, friends and out-of-town guests to a one-of-a-kind, unforgettable Hollywood experience.”
The tours last approximately 2 hours and begin at 6:30 p.m. in the lobby of Sony Pictures Plaza. Free parking is available under the Sony Pictures Plaza building off Madison Avenue in Culver City, between West Washington Boulevard and Culver Boulevard.
“This is a working studio, so people walking the lot during their tour may have a chance to see an actual set for a motion picture or television show or, on occasion, actors and extras on the lot for a shoot,” said Byrne.
Visitors will often see actual Oscar® statuettes celebrating a number of Columbia Pictures’ “Best Picture” awards, as well as Scoring and Foley stages, and the sets of television shows like Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Props such as the motorcycles from Ghost Rider, the neuralizer from Men in Black, the cryptex from The DaVinci Code and a model of Godzilla’s baby are among many other cinema icons also on display.
There also is a collection of costumes from the classic “Ghostbusters” to “Memoirs of a Geisha” and “Spider-Man 3” that can be viewed in the beautiful Sony Pictures Plaza atrium prior to your tour.
