The Backdrop

Warner Bros. Studios is one of the most memorable motion picture and television production facilities in the world, dating back to the late 1920s. The headquarters is comprised of 110 acres in Burbank, CA, split between a 20-acre backlot and a front lot with 30 sound stages that have housed some of the iconic television series like The Big Bang Theory, Friends and ER.

With the birth of Looney Tunes in the 1930s, Warner Bros. cemented its legacy in the creative arts. For the past 100 years, they have developed into a television powerhouse and force at the box office that holds more records than any other studio. At the 2018 Academy Awards, Warner Bros. films were nominated 14 times, many for Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049.

And now you can bring this success to your very own events.
