The original Warner Bros. Tour Department was established in 1973, the same year The Exorcist, Cleopatra Jones, and Enter The Dragon were released. At that time, the department consisted of seven employees who answered the phone, operated the cash register, and performed guided tours for about 50 guests daily. Over the years, the tour has been seen in the following productions: Blazing Saddles, Looney Tunes: Back in Action, Gossip Girl, Space Jam: A New Legacy, Teen Titans Go to The Movies, Entourage, Animaniacs, The Rookie, Grease LIVE, Famous in Love, Ellen, and more.
