AAA Editor Notes
Paramount Pictures Studio Tour is at 5515 Melrose Ave. Visitors board a tram for a 2-hour tour of Paramount Pictures Studio’s historic 65-acre lot—a tour that includes such sights as a display case filled with Oscars won by Paramount films; an extensive New York street backdrop; the “B Tank,” a pool used for filming effects sequences involving water, most famously the parting of the Red Sea in “The Ten Commandments”; and sound stages still used for film and television production. A tour highlight is the iconic Bronson Gate, the studio’s arched Mediterranean Revival-style main entrance seen in several movies including 1950’s “Sunset Boulevard.” The 4.5-hour VIP Studio Tour also includes lunch, access to the archive facilities and an exclusive hands-on look at sets and props.
