Very interesting tour. Film production, right in North Carolina! The tour guides are entertaining and personable. A good experience without having to travel to Hollywood. Reasonably priced.

As a fan of Under the Dome, I was excited to learn that we could visit the set at EUE studios. Tours are only $10 pp and occur at 10, Noon and 2. The 2:00 tour was pretty crowded to we were divided into 2 groups. It was terribly hot outside and you do spend a good deal of time... More

It was neat to take a look behind the scenes, but they only had two sets from the tv show Under The Dome, Wish they had older sets left and maybe some memorabilia around but the guide was very entertaining so overall not a bad way to spend an hour and $12

We had been wanting to take this tour for quite some time. It seems that it is only offered during the summer months and our visits to Wilmington always seemed to be at times when it was not being offered. We finally had the opportunity to go and found it pretty disappointing. Now that much of the film business has... More

Rather than visit a bunch of similar theme parks or cookie-cutter beaches, I prefer to seek out unique experiences. Screen Gems provides a rare opportunity (especially on the east coast) to be on the set of live, in-production TV shows and movies. For that reason alone, I loved it. When you first get there, you are greeted by several (three... More

We had a wonderful tour. We were very lucky and experienced 3 different settings from "Under the Dome". The guide was funny and entertaining, he might even be our favorite part. Our group had 1 grandmother, 2 forty-five year olds, a fifteen year old and a ten year old and we all enjoyed ourselves.

I've done the screen gems tour twice since it reopened. It was very cool and very informative for individuals super interested in film and TV. I loved being able to visit the sets. The first time we saw sets from Under the Dome and the second time we saw sets from both Under the Dome and Secrets and Lies. Even... More

Took the tour of the location while in town visiting family. It was well worth the $12.00 admission and the guides were energetic and fun. It would have been nice to take a few photos outdoors on the lot. We understand not being able to photo inside the sound stages though. Only saw two sound stages which was a little... More
