Scoring Stages: Goldwyn Studios

Goldwyn Studio
Stage 7
Used since the silent era in 1917, the lot as gone through several names.  Know as Hampton Studios and Pickford-Fairbanks Studio in the 1920s, United Artists Studio starting in 1928 and in the 1950s became Samuel Goldwyn Studio.  Besides films, the stage was used for recording many albums.  By 1972, the Scoring Stage was unused for years.  After fires a few years later, the Scoring Stage was not rebuilt, and instead dismantled and turned into a shooting stage.  The lot was purchased by Warner Brothers in 1980, and changed names to Warner Hollywood Studio.  Warner sold the studio lot in 1999, and is currently a leased studio space known as The Lot.

Gone with the Wind (1939) - Max Steiner
