Our facilities include an exciting array of state-of-the-art tools, technology and equipment rivaling any professional studio, production house or Broadway stage. From the best film and digital cameras to classic film and TV soundstages and a real working back lot, to high-end mixing and scoring stages and the finest post-production editing suites and facilities, we stand alongside the best of the breed.

We have two major working theaters including the 567-seat Freud Playhouse, fantastic rehearsal spaces, and professional costume, scenic and prop shops on campus. We also have cutting-edge research labs such as REMAP and the Walter Lantz Digital Animation Lab that help define where the digital future is going.

We’re home to Dolby and the American Society of Cinematographers who look to us to help them test next-stage technology. Our 295-seat Billy Wilder Theater at the Hammer Museum is our cinematheque screening facility for the Archive, and our 278-seat James Bridges Theater on campus is considered one of the finest screening rooms in the world, with the rare ability to screen classic nitrate prints from among the treasures in our Archive.
