"Under the Dome" set tours wrap this weekend

Posted August 10, 2015

— Fans of the hit CBS series "Under the Dome" have one last chance to get a glimpse behind the scenes.

Production tours of EUE/Screen Gems Studios in Wilmington will close after this weekend.

The tours, which take place each Saturday and Sunday during the summer, are wrapping early because "Under the Dome" is breaking down sets that will not be used in future seasons.

EUE/Screen Gems is the largest studio complex east of California and has been home to films and television shows for three decades.

In addition to the tour, visitors will see a visual history of the state's film and television industry in the same screening theater where many famous producers, directors and actors have reviewed productions shot at the studios.

The studio is located at 1223 23rd St. North.

Tour times are 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m., weather permitting. Check the tour hotline at 910-343-3433 to confirm tour times.

Admission prices are $12 for adults, $10 for students and military personnel with an ID and $5 for children under 12 years of age. All admission is cash only.

The studios stopped hosting tours in fall 2011 after production wrapped on the CW series "One Tree Hill." They had been hosting tours of the studios for 15 years. Tours resumed again last year.

Headquartered in New York City, EUE/Screen Gems provides production space, studios and more for film, TV and commercial producers in Wilmington and Atlanta.

In recent years, the Wilmington complex has played host to films "Iron Man 3," "The Conjuring" and "We're the Millers." In addition to "Under the Dome," it has hosted HBO's "Eastbound and Down" and FOX show "Sleepy Hollow."
