For an exciting look into how your favorite movies are made, spend a day touring the Sony Pictures Studios. Just west of Los Angeles in Culver City, many television shows and hit movies are created here each day. The Sony Pictures Studio, the studio behind “Jerry Maguire,” “Jumanji” and many other favorites, offers a full studio tour several times daily (reservations are recommended). A fun-filled day will allow you to walk down the legendary “Main Street,” see Studio 11, where “Wheel of Fortune” is filmed, and tour a few sound stages to see how the magic really happens. The educated tour guides will walk you through the studios while sharing stories and interesting anecdotes.
Before you embark on your tour, consider sitting with the family and spending some time browsing the online Sony Pictures Entertainment Museum to catch up on some history so you know what questions to ask. There are a few rules and regulations when touring the studio to keep in mind, so read up before you go.
Make the drive west to Culver City in a vehicle that can handle the whole family while still performing at the top of its class. A 2014 E350 4MATIC Sport Wagon from Mercedes-Benz of Encino is an ideal ride to express a level of refined taste that can’t be matched.
