As the longest operating and only remaining major studio in Hollywood, Paramount Pictures has been on the ground flood of every major development in film – from the advent of motion pictures, to the emergence of television through the digital revolution. During their 100-year history, they have served as the production site for thousands of notable movies and TV shows.
Their studio lot has grown considerably over the years, expanding from 26 acres and four stages to 65 acres and thirty stages. They’ve also constructed other impressive sites like the massive Blue Sky Tank and their one-of-a-king New York Street, which features ten district city neighborhood backdrops.
When you visit the lot, not only will you see where some of the most celebrated movies and television series were made, but also see how they continue to produce iconic motion pictures from the next century. At Paramount Studios, you’ll get to wander through the past and see the future at the same time.
When you come see the Paramount Pictures lot, your visit isn’t complete without a stop in the Studio Store. Located on the famous Paramount Paseo, this is the place to find a little something to take home so you’ll always remember the great time you had on their lot.
They offer complete lines of branded clothing and jackets and all types of Paramount souvenirs. Their inventory is constantly updated with seasonal items that are perfect for yourself or as a gift. On top of everything else, they keep all the latest Paramount movie releases in stock, in both DVD and Blu-ray, including a large selection of hard-to-find classics.
Nestled in the Studio Store, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is the place where you can enjoy one of their specialty beverages, including lattes, espressos, cappuccinos, teas, and many other coffee house drinks. Daily fresh-baked pastries for breakfast and delicious kosher sandwiches and snacks will delight you, and offer a great way to stay energized during your tour.
