Get ready for a great weekend, but bundle up! It’s gonna be a COLD one! Brrrr! Okay, let’s see what we got today:
EUE/Screen Gems Studios still has more work to due maintenance-wise, so they will be taking a break from tours during the winter months when there are fewer visitors to the lot. Tours will resume in early Spring, 2015. As for other film locations to visit, Wilmington and Beaches Convention and Visitors Bureau provides information about additional shooting locations and tours. – See more at: http://www.wilmingtonandbeaches.com/hollywood-east
