About

Sunset Boulevard celebrates Hollywood of the 1940s and houses several major attractions like The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, Fantasmic! and Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage.

The street is a dead end side street off of Hollywood Boulevard and was the first major expansion to the then MGM Studios in 1994. Shops and Quick Service restaurants harken back to the 1940s era of the "Hollywood that never was, and always will be."

Adding to the environment are many "Streetmasphere" characters that help entertain guests by being a part of the story.

The facades for the different buildings pay tribute to many buildings found in the Hollywood area:

  • Sweet Spells (Based off the now demolished Warner Beverly Hills Theatre, Wilshire Blvd)
  • Legends of Hollywood (Based off the Academy Theatre, West Manchester Blvd, Inglewood, CA)
  • Villains in Vogue (Based off Pasadena Winter Garden, Arroyo Parkway and East Colorado Blvd, Pasadena)
  • Once Upon a Time (Based off the now demolished Carthay Circle Theater, San Vicente Blvd, the Berman Building, West Sunset Blvd.
  • Sunset Ranch Market (Based off the Los Angeles Farmers Market, Third & Fairfax)
  • Tower of Terror Restrooms (Based off Beachwood Drive, Hollywood)
