Join the L.A. Conservancy for an exciting and rare opportunity to tour the historic FOX Studio Lot! Normally closed to the public, this exclusive tour led by Conservancy guides will give tourgoers the chance to amble along the original ‘streets’ and ‘boulevards’ designed as part of the principal studio’s 1928 master plan. 

The architecturally eclectic lot features everything from Egyptian-themed soundstages to a Storybook chateau, as well as art murals and sites iconic to the studio’s history. Learn more about the history of classic FOX films and see the places where stars like Shirley Temple and Marilyn Monroe spent their downtime between takes.

While predominantly focused on the exterior of buildings, participants will be taken inside the FOX scoring stage to see where soundtracks for films like THE SOUND OF MUSIC were recorded. Tourgoers will also visit the famous New York Street, the outdoor New York City streetscape used in innumerable films and television. 

Amid all the sights, tourgoers will learn how historic preservation is part of the future at FOX, and how the Conservancy works with studios, including FOX, to find common ground between the need to modernize and preserve the past.
