A living piece of Hollywood history
With humble beginnings in 1915 when much of LA was still open farmland and big dreams, Raleigh Studios remains one of the longest continually-operating studios in the world. Run under the banners of the Famous Players Film Corp., Clune Studios, California Studios among others, this 10-acre parcel of history has hosted some of Hollywood’s biggest stars since the Golden Age of film. Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, and Mary Pickford have practiced their craft on these grounds. Two Academy Award winners for Best Picture (1946’s “The Best Years of Our Lives” and 1967’s “In The Heat of the Night”) were filmed on this very lot.
Under the ownership of Raleigh Enterprises since 1979, Raleigh Studios has been evolved into one of the most state-of-the-art studios in Hollywood, fully equipped with modern facilities, parking and heavy vehicle access, high-speed Internet and telecom, and high-end amenities and comforts for fast-paced productions. Whatever the next chapter of Hollywood’s history brings, we’ll be there to support the magic and the business of moviemaking.
