Los Angeles, CA, June 18, 2009 — Universal Studios Hollywood’s Studio Tour trams are now newly equipped as “mobile movie theaters” with hi-def video monitors, all-new video content and state-of-the art audio systems.The re-opening of Courthouse Square marks a milestone in the largest set construction project in Hollywood history, an ongoing project undertaken by the studio following the four-acre June 2008 fire that impacted several famous film locations on the historic studio backlot. All of the other backlot locations are set to open in the spring of next year. Courthouse Square, now fully restored, is the world’s most-photographed town square, and the site of over a thousand movie and TV shoots dating back to the 1940s. The location is widely known from the Back to the Future film series and home to the CBS hit drama Ghost Whisperer.
