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.
