The Stage


Welcome to Manhattan Beach Studios’ Sound Stage (aka… the Screening Room).. We host an incredibly versatile stage on the MBS Media Campus lot, with tons of amenities and opportunities. The stage is ideal not only for photography and video projects, but live streaming, social events and much more. Here is some information.

A Great Place to Work

We are located in the MBS Media Campus Media Center (Building 7). The stage is approximately 1300 square feet, hosting a three wall set and plenty of working space for staging and set design. We have a cozy lobby with a television, seating area and refrigerator/water. Behind the wall sits a makeup station and work area often used for catering, dressing and more. We maintain a shared kitchen and office space.
