Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood announces an exciting partnership with Turner Classic Movies (TCM) to launch a brand new TCM Classic Films Tour for TCM’s 30th anniversary this month. The enhanced tour will take guests on an incredible journey through the Golden Age of Hollywood, celebrating iconic movies that are featured on TCM, as well as showcasing the size of the Warner Bros. library.

Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group’s Mike De Luca and Pam Abdy said, “For 100 years, Warner Bros. has stood for the very best in moviemaking and TCM has continued to spotlight the legacy of the studio with incredible program offerings throughout its 30 years.  We are thrilled movie lovers from around the world can visit the iconic Burbank lot to experience the TCM Classic Films Tour and celebrate the rich history of the studio’s contributions to cinema.”

Guests will explore the historic Warner Bros. Studio backlot with a focus on the studio’s early days, delving into the timeless allure of classic cinema and feeling the magic of Hollywood’s rich history firsthand.

The brand new tour promises an entertaining journey that offers something different and unique.  Highlights include visiting new points of interest such as the exterior of James Dean’s apartment where he resided while working on the lot; the serene rose garden, which in the early years was Jack Warner’s tennis court and was surrounded by talent dressing rooms; and the Eastwood Scoring Stage built in 1929 where countless titles have been scored.
