Description

Texas' own major movie production facility is the largest in the country outside of Florida and California. The studio's production company, Thornhill Productions Inc., has helped create such prestigious films as Silkwood, JFK and Trip to Bountiful. The public tour features such film artifacts as costumes from The Sound of Music and the bench from Forrest Gump. The tour lasts about an hour and a half, and includes The Blue Screen F/X Show, where the magical effects of the movies are explained and demonstrated. The National Museum of Communications, located in the same complex, holds the world's first color television and a Guttenberg printing press.
