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. The Paramount After Dark Tour begins with a champagne toast and highlights the studio's history and forgotten passageways.Note: Photo ID is required.
