Go Behind the Scenes with a Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood

Forget the traditional “dinner and movie” and take a trip into the magic of the motion pictures on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood.

There are many attractions in the area that revolve around the film industry. From random “celebrity sightings” to the historical landmarks of our beloved Tinseltown, the magic of the movies is ever-present. Yet for those who want to get a true immersive, backstage view should look no further than the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood!

Running daily, this tour will take you on a journey through the past, present, and future of Warner Brothers Studios and their beloved franchises. No two tours will be the same, as the routes change based on the productions that are being currently filmed on the studio lot. Yet some of the traditional aspects, such as the visit through the Prop Department and Archives will remain.

Warner Bros. Studio Tour HollywoodHighlights of this tour are:

Stage 48: Script to Screen – self-guided experience on an interactive soundstage exploring all of the phases of the film production process.

DC Universe: The Exhibit – from the newest addition of Aquaman to the fan-favorite Justice League display, get a glimpse at the costumes and props from these popular comic book film adaptations.

The Wizarding World: Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts Exhibit – a reimagined display combining both timelines in this magical franchise.

The Batcave –the “Picture Car Vault” has been transformed to spotlight Batman and the Caped Crusader’s many famous vehicles.

There are multiple tour options – from the standard Studio Tour to a true “date-night” favorite with the Classics Made Here evening events (offered on select days). No matter your choice, be sure to book in advance. Even though the “studio” is open from 8:00AM to 4:30PM every day, there’s limited availability for each tour.

Keep the magical feeling of the movies alive and complement your tour with a stay at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel. Located less than five miles away, feel every bit the movie star in the luxurious comfort of our accommodations.
