The movie magic you’ve been missing
Culver City has been the center of movie and television production since the 1920s, and a lot of that history is hidden in plain sight. Your team will follow a trail of tricky clues and answer humorous questions about the surprising places and things you discover.
Along the way, you might spot…
- A spiral trail that salutes Oz’s Yellow Brick Road
- The hotel where many a Munchkin bedded down for the night
- A hot spot that will transport you to Gone with the Wind
- Zoetropes around town that you’ll give a spin to see a “movie”
- A road trip with Lucy and Ricky Ricardo
- A quirky work of art that marks the site of a former movie-studio commissary
And those are just a few of the highlights associated with the golden age of the movie business. This game is available anytime as a great corporate team-building program or a fun activity for a social group.
Oz was here!
Not only was The Wizard of Oz filmed in Culver City, but kids can also walk on a modern-day version of the Yellow Brick Road. That’s just one of the many highlights that makes this scavenger hunt a delight—and perfect for a birthday party, a family get-together, or a school field trip.
Kids and adults team up to follow a trail of tricky clues and answer humorous questions about the quirky, unusual, and fun movie-related sights they’ll discover. Even Dorothy would be impressed.
Favorite finds include…
- A fountain with a lion who must have seen Kung Fu Panda
- An old-time movie camera hidden in a garden, where you can play director
- Strange works of art in hidden places
- A variety of zoetropes (old-fashioned moving-image viewers) placed around town that you must give a spin to see a “movie”
It’s a great activity for birthday parties, school field trips, summer-camp outings—you name it. Recommended for ages 7 and up.
