Consider yourself a fan of classic films like Rebel Without a Cause, My Fair Lady and Casablanca? Well you’ll soon be able to get a deeper look into the creation and stories behind these great films, as Warner Bros. Studio in Hollywood are set to launch a exclusive classics themed tour.
To celebrate 95 years of producing films and television shows, Warner Bros. are launching the Classics Made Here tour on 4 May 2018, that will take you back in time and re-trace the steps of Hollywood’s Golden Age and legends.
“Our Classics Made Here Tour and Exhibit highlights all the aspects of old Hollywood and brings our guests closer to the classic films and shows they love,” said Gary Soloff, WBSTH Director of Marketing.
Each tour is led by a specially trained guide, who will share their extensive knowledge of Warner Bros.’ classic library titles including Casablanca, My Fair Lady, Rebel Without a Cause, as well as television shows such as Maverick, The Waltons and Batman. To kick off the two hour tour, you’ll be greeted with a champagne toast and then board carts to visit famous back lots, historic sound stages and many of the studio’s most famous landmarks.
At the end of the two hour tour, you’ll get to have exclusive access to never-before-seen costumes and props in Stage 48: Script to Screen. Here, the Classics exhibit pays homage to the legacy of Warner Bros.’ footprint in Hollywood and offers a close look at rare, never-before-exhibited costumes straight from the films that memorialised them on the big screen.
The exhibit features a re-creation of the Ascot Race scene from My Fair Lady with a costume worn by Audrey Hepburn and imagined by Oscar-winning costume designer Sir Cecil Beaton. Debuting publicly for the first time in 75 years are Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman’s costumes worn in the famous, “Here’s looking at you, kid” farewell scene from Casablanca, paying homage to the gangster classics, while the Rebel Without a Cause scene features the book that sparked the story and original costumes.
The Classics Made Here tour kicks off 4th May and will be open Fridays and Saturdays. You can check out all the booking information over at wbstudiotour.com.
