FROM: EUE/Screen Gems Studios in Wilmington, NC
EUE/Screen Gems will wrap seasonal tours on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 15 and 16, 2015. Tours are wrapping because “Under The Dome” (CBS) is breaking down sets that will not be used in future seasons.
Visitors who come for these last summer tours will experience a visual history of the North Carolina film and television industry in the screening theater where many famous producers, directors and actors have reviewed footage of productions shot at the studio. Posters and memorabilia from previous productions that have shot on the lot will be in the Commissary building where guests purchase tickets. Guests are allowed to use cameras in this waiting area only; cameras and photography are not allowed on the rest of the tour.
The last Summer 2015 tours will be hosted on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 15 and 16 at 10 am, 12 noon and 2 pm, weather permitting. Guests should check the tour hotline before traveling for the latest tour updates. Tours can be canceled or delayed at the last minute due to weather changes. Guests should arrive at the studios at least 30 minutes ahead of time to purchase tickets.
