Step back into a legendary time on the Sony Pictures Studio tour!

Visit soundstages once home to iconic films like “The Wizard of Oz,” “Men in Black” and “Spider-Man.” Swing by smash-hit games shows “Jeopardy!” and “Wheel of Fortune.” You might even catch a glimpse of the Barbra Streisand Scoring stage or a set from the hit comedy, “The Goldbergs.” Keep your eyes open... You never know what – or who – will be around the next corner.

Watched 3 filmings. Great fun and it is free! In fact all taping in LA are free. Don't let the street denizens sell you a ticket. Just go online and come early. Only 100 seats.

Great Experience! We were fortunate to get to see inside the Barbra Streisand Scoring Studio, one of the top two sound studios in the world and possibly the best for its acoustics, where the scores for countless great movies scores and recording artists have been recorded from Judy Garland recording the Wizard of Oz soundtrack to the greatest films today....

Requested tickets to see taping of Jeopardy. I walk with a cane and the staff, from front gate person to everyone involved with getting us to the taping was so friendly and considerate. Sonny, the person who drove us in the golf cart was so friendly and kind and took pictures of us posing inside at the jeopardy prop sets.... More

I had nothing against the tour guide. Nice fellow seemed to know his stuff, but we literally walked around essentially a load of back alleys with nice cream painted walls and "stage xx" on them - saw both spectacular - everything that was pointed out was reference to dead people - nothing modern or current here to loo at -...

I would give this one a miss. You have to use a lot of your imagination just to remember the scenery from you favorite series and movies that are shot there, as the tour guide is explaining everything to you. There is very limited access to the recording sets, we only got to go to "The Goldbergs" set and everything... More

My family went here this past summer, and it was a blast! We got to go on the set of the TV show, "The Goldbergs" and it was so cool! We also got to go on the set of "Jeopardy!" and "Wheel of Fortune". We also get to see the rainbow that was in "The Wizard of Oz"
