Essentially created by the motion picture industry, Studio City was officially “born” in 1928 when construction was completed on the 200-acre Mack Sennett Studios and filming began on silent movie classics such as “The Keystone Cops”. Sennett Studios would eventually become the famous Republic Pictures Studio in 1935 and is now home to CBS Studio Center. It wasn’t unusual to see big-named movie stars such as Errol Flynn, Bette Davis, and Roy Rogers walking along the streets of Studio City!
Throughout the years, Studio City has continued to be the center for TV and movie productions. Some very popular TV series have been produced at the CBS studios, including “Evening Shade”, “Newhart”, and “Thirtysomething” and feature films including “Dr. Doolite”, “The Addams Family”, and “Father of the Bride.” Visitors to Studio City can enjoy shopping on Ventura Boulevard, a visit to the CBS Studio Center to see a TV show taping, or a day of hiking in Coldwater Canyon Park.
