Living in Culver City I was able to get some free passes to the studio. It was a lot of walking but a very interesting tour. I have toured other studios and this was right up there with most of them except for Universal.

Really enjoyed my trip to Sony Studios recently. Our tour guide was very informative and friendly. It's fascinating to be able to go into a working sound stage and see how a TV show or movie is made. Highly recommended.
