LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Sony Pictures Imageworks is moving its headquarters from Culver City to Canada.
The visual-effects unit, which employs about 270 people, said it was moving a bulk of its operations to Vancouver, where it already has a satellite studio, the Los Angeles Times reported.
A small staff will remain in Los Angeles.
The move will cut costs due to Canadian tax breaks, the Times said.
