A Truffle must this weekend, rain or shine, is a trip to Paramount Picture Studios (ticket cost: $20) for Paris Photo, a pop-up of galleries along the facade of the lot’s New York Street and on Stage 3; guest go back and forth between the two areas via Paramount Pictures golf carts.
There is no better time to have full access to explore this LA gem and one the prettiest studios in the Hollywood. We assembled this little video tour for you but strongly encourage you all to go browse the pop-up gallery spaces, buy lunch from any of the food trucks parked for the weekend and attend one of the many ‘conversations’ and booking signings detailed out on www.parisphoto.com.
