Sony Pictures

Guests can travel somewhere over the rainbow with a tour of Sony Pictures, once home to the legendary MGM Studios where studio head Louis B. Mayer was one of the most feared men in Hollywood.

Billed as the original “Heart of Screenland,” the Studio served as the backdrop for the 1939 classic film The Wizard of Oz.
These days Columbia Pictures and Columbia Tri Star television are churning out the hits, with such big screen hits as Stuart Little and Men in Black, as well as small screen Favorites like Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!

The two- hour tour travels to the actual inter- working of the studio, places such as the Wardrobe Department, where 350 different pirate costumes were designed for the movie Hook.
Other stops include a visit to the studio’s archival museum, and guests are treated to a private screening chronicling the studio’s history accompanied by a reel of memorable movie outtakes.
