Culver City is known as "The Heart of Screenland".
It is the original home of the M.G.M. Studios amongst many others and is now the home of Sony Pictures Studios.
Many of your favorite movies and television shows were filmed in and around the streets of Culver City. Beginning in the era of the silent movie such classics as Charlie Chaplin, The Three Stooges, The Little Rascals and Our Gang Comedies. In the seventies I watched them film "King Kong" and the T.V. show "CHiPS". The list continues to grow to this day and includes many of the game shows like "Wheel of Fortune".
The downtown area near the studios has become a rather exclusive collection of shops restaurants and theaters with the landmark building "Culver Hotel" at it's center.
There is lots more but that's a start
