CURATOR’S COMMENTS: That’s A Wrap!

MovieSlateThere are lingoes on movie sets. When the first assistant director announces enthusiastically, “that’s a wrap” after the last shot is filmed on set it means that hours, days, and perhaps months of rigorous work are over and everyone can look forward to a wrap party to celebrate their accomplishments. I ran across this abandoned studio in Santa Monica, California and have tried to research the history behind this studio to no avail. One time there were multiple studios like this one all over Los Angeles that provided work for thousands of dedicated Angelinos. That’s a wrap on these old studios, smashed by the wrecking ball undocumented, unidentified and lost to movie history forever.
