Caesars Entertainment opens full-service studio space in Las Vegas
29 Jun 2017
Each year, over 50 productions ranging from movies to television shows have used Caesars Entertainment properties for filming in Las Vegas. The ever-growing slate of films includes two films from the "Hangover" trilogy, "Jason Bourne," "Rain Man," "Iron Man" and "The Big Short," solidifying Caesars Entertainment as a pillar for film and television productions world-wide.
"Given our long-standing relationship with the entertainment industry, the studio's close proximity to the famed Las Vegas Strip, as well as its state-of-the-art infrastructure, the opportunity to open Caesars Entertainment Studios makes perfect business sense," said Jason Gastwirth, Senior Vice President of Marketing & Entertainment for Caesars Entertainment Corporation. "We saw an opportunity to do something that's never been done in Nevada, and we're confident that production companies will see the value our space provides. We're already seeing a return as 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' has started utilizing the studio for its latest production."
Featuring over 48,000 square feet of production space, the studio sits on five acres of land adjacent to Bally's - Las Vegas (a Caesars Entertainment property). The soundstage is capable of hosting feature films, television shows (game shows, sitcoms) and special events (concerts, sports).
Stand-out specs and amenities of the new Caesars Entertainment Studios, include:
- 400 tons silent AC/250 tons of silent heat.
- 10,000 amps of power.
- 3,500-square-foot lobby.
- Hair/Makeup and Wardrobe Gold Rooms.
- Talent and VIP Gold Rooms.
- 24-Hour security.
- 250 dedicated parking spots.
In a move intended to bring new production revenue into Nevada, the state legislature recently passed a bill funding $10 million a year in film tax credits, an act that will help incentivize productions to utilize Caesars Entertainment Studios.
