Looking West on Ventura Boulevard
Studio City is one of 24 named communities in the San Fernando Valley, which are part of the incorporated City of Los Angeles. Only 15 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, world-famous Studio City is nestled in the foothills of the north slope of the Santa Monica mountains providing easy access to Hollywood, Downtown, the Valley and Beverly Hills.

History of Studio City: Studio City received its name as a result of the filming activities of Mack Sennett during the silent film era in the 1920's. In 1927, the Central Motion Picture District began to develop a $20 million film center named Studio City. By 1935 it evolved into the Republic Pictures Studio (the area became offically know as Studio City in 1928 when the Mack Sennett Studios began shooting a two reeler, The Keystone Cops and the Oh-You-Kid Bathing Beauties). Movie stars from the Republic Days included Ronald Regan, James Stewart, Bette Davis, Jack Benny, Tony Curtis, Jack Webb, Joan Fontaine, Jane Wyman, Peter Lawford, Ray Milland, Alfred Hitchcock, Roy Rogers, and John Wayne. After working for Republic, many stars and movie industry employees settled here and made Studio City their home. Actors such as Errol Flynn walked the streets along with countless others, especially the Hollywood Cowboys. Studio City earned a repuation for being a safe, healthy place to raise children and was considered by many to be the Jewel of the Valley. Along Ventura Boulevard, the economy prospered with thriving mom-and-pop Studio City hsotels, boutiques, restaurants, banks, and offices.

Studio City Today: By the 1980's, Studio City's population reached 25,000 people. In 1985, CBS/MTM Studios began producing shows such as Newhart, Thirtysomething, Dinosaurs, Roseanne, A Different World, My Two Dads, Evening Shade, Twilight Zone, and full-length features including, Father of the Bride and The Addams Family. In 1992, CBS acquired MTM's interest and produced Grace Under Fire, Roseanne, Men Behaving Badly, Dave's World, Love and War, Double Rush, Hearts Afire, The Larry Sanders Show, Cybill, Seinfeld, Unhappily Ever After, American Gladiators, A.J.'s Time Travelers, Round House, Adventures in Wonderland, and the feature films Addams Family Values, I Love Trouble, Mr. Wrong, Boys on the Side, House Arrest, Desperate Measures, and Dr. Doolittle. Today, Studio City continues to be the Jewel of the Valley and is one of the most desirable places to live in Los Angeles County.
