EUE/Screen Gems Studio Tours Will Begin Hosting Food Trucks On Saturdays

Wilmington, NC (June 03, 2015) EUE/Screen Gems Studios in Wilmington, NC announced today that popular local food trucks will sell food on the lot for Saturday studio tours during June and July.

The food trucks collaborating with EUE/Screen Gems Studio tours are:

June 6: Mamma Rocks Desserts Truck – Serves cupcakes and confections

June 13: Mamma Rocks Desserts Truck

June 20: Catch – Tacos, seafood sliders made with local ingredients

June 27: Kona Ice – Shaved ice and ice cream

July 4: Mamma Rocks

July 11: Kona Ice

July 18: Kona Ice

July 25: Catch

Trey Mosteller, EUE/Screen Gems Tour Manager says EUE/Screen Gems has worked to organize the trucks in response to visitor requests. “Many guests have asked about food options when they come to the studio. Inviting the food trucks to join us is a great way to promote local small businesses—the backbone of our film industry—and offer a true taste of Wilmington at the same time,” Mosteller says.

The studio tours offer an insider’s look at the largest studio complex east of California and three decades of film and television history. Visitors walk the 10-stage lot, tour a set from the CBS series “Under The Dome,” and depending on shooting schedules, see a house used in ABC’s “Secrets and Lies.”

Tours are on Saturdays and Sundays at 10 am, 12 noon and 2 pm weather permitting throughout the summer. Food trucks will be available only on Saturdays. Guests are encouraged to call the tour hotline before visiting, (910) 343-3433. As a working studio complex, tours are occasionally delayed.

Tour (and food truck) location: 1223 23rd Street North, Wilmington, NC 28405

Cost: $12 for adults

$10 for students and military personnel with an ID

EUE/Screen Gems Tour Director Pam Stilwell advises wearing comfortable shoes and bringing rain gear if there’s a chance of showers. “We are indoors and out, and on our feet—all over this production complex—so we want to make sure our guests have a great experience, rain or shine,” she says. The tour lasts an hour.

Last season’s tours attracted more than 1000 guests from throughout the United States and Canada and around the world. “We are quite proud of the attachment fans have for this facility and its production history,” says Stilwell.

EUE/Screen Gems Studios hosted tours of the studios for 15 years and concluded them in the fall of 2011 when the CW series “One Tree Hill” wrapped production. The tours were hosted again last spring and summer.
