I found this tour to be one of the most fun experiences I had while staying in Wilmington. Not only were my four tour guides informative and fun to listen to, but the experience itself was just beyond awesome. The tour costs $12 per person (a HUGE bargain considering similar tours at studios in California run a lot more than... More

Four of us (two adults, two teens) went on the Screen Gems Studio tour on Saturday, August 9, 2014. We attended the 10AM tour. We arrived at 9:30AM and were the 14-17 people in line. By the time the tour started, there were about 50 people in attendance. Tickets and T-shirts are “Cash Only,” so come prepared. They divided us... More

An hour tour for $12 adult and $5 child was pretty limited. Lots of talking from the guides but little to look at. Got to see three sets from Under The Dome TV show which was pretty cool. However that was it. Two other studios were closed. Lasted a little over an hour. Need to add to the tour to... More

Great to see the movie industry in Wilmington - Under the Dome, Sleepy Hollow to Iron Man 3. Bring cash since they don't take any cards but worth the experience

The hour long tour was very informative and gave a behind the scenes look at the magic of movie and tv productions. We highly recommend it!

We saw ONE set and after that it was all outside in very hot humid heat on asphalt. They did offer Wal Mart bottled water for $1. The guides would point to barrack type buildings and tell you what was inside them, but you could not go in. If you were not close to the guide you were unable to... More

This is the largest movie studio outside of LA. There are 10 backlots. Tours are given Saturday and Sunday at 10, 12 and 2. It is very interesting to see how the sets are made. Currently filming here among others is Under the Dome. On the tour you can go on the set of the diner, the jail and town... More

We were looking for something different to do in the area. Thought this tour would fit the bill. The 1 hour tour cost is $12 pp. Cash only. No charge for parking. Our tour guide was a film student at UNC Wilmington. She was very knowledgeable about the film making process. You check in at the building that is used... More
