Old Tucson Studios Photos 2012

September 14, 2012



In March of 2012, I went to Old Tucson Studios in Tucson, Arizona. Old Tucson Studios is an attraction outside Tucson, Arizona where movies and TV shows were filmed. Most of the movies and TV shows were westerns and there are some of the original sets still there. You an walk in and look around the buildings and sets without anyone stopping you. They also offer tours that talk about the sets and buildings, gunfight shows, museums, rides, and other stuff. It’s really fun to go to if you’re a western fan or just want to see something unusual.

I went there in 2011 and had a great time, but this year they added some new buildings, called Heritage Square, in front of the City Hall building. I’m not completely sure why they were added (Probably because 2012 is Arizona’s Centennial?), but I ended up taking photos of the new buildings the most because I had photos of the other buildings already. ^_^

One of the chandeliers I saw in the buildings. I really like this chandelier most of all the light fixtures in all the buildings, mostly because it made the prettiest light designs when I took a picture underneath it.

A cannon on display in one of the buildings. I’m not sure if it was used in a movie, but it is on display for everyone to look at.

The balcony of the City Hall building, decorated for Arizona’s Centennial. There is no second floor in the building, so it’s meant to be just for show. After all, it is a movie set! XD

These are all the photos I have for now. I have many more, but for now these are the only ones I can find. They’re saved on a disk, and I put the disk somewhere I cannot find. When I find it, I’ll add more photos of the neat buildings you can see there. :)
