Culver City is known as “the Heart of Screenland,” having housed many studios over the years including MGM Studios and currently Sony Pictures Entertainment and Culver Studios. Movies such as Gone with the Wind, King Kong and the famous Wizard of Oz were filmed here.The historic Culver Hotel, recently renovated, was home to the Munchkins during the filming of that classic movie and is a city landmark.
Today, Culver City is known for its excellent schools, newly vitalized downtown with upscale restaurants, theaters, and numerous art galleries throughout the east Washington corridor.
A five-member elected City Council governs the city and a five-member Board of Education governs the public schools. Adjacent to our city is West Los Angeles College, a two-year community college, preparing students for career and academic university transfers, internationally as well!
