Sunset Gower Studios


The Sunset Gower Studios are one of the last studio facilities still located within the Hollywood city boundaries. (Most of the other studios relocated to surrounding cities.) Built by Columbia Pictures' Harry Cohn in 1918 in what was then considered "Poverty Row", the Lot became the headquarters of Columbia Pictures in the 1920's.


Beset by financial problems, Columbia sold the studio lot in the 1970's after which it got its current name. The studio has hosted a cavalcade of classic television productions including The Golden Girls, Married... with Children, The Donna Reed Show, Bewitched and many more.
