The story of Universal Studios dates as far back as 1905 when Carl Laemmele visited Chicago. It was there that he discovered the success of Nickelodeons. After purchasing a few Nickelodeons and being forced to film his own movies, Mr. Laemmele began construction on what would become one of the world’s favourite theme parks, Universal Studios.

Now you can relive the history of Universal Studios in this 60 minute DVD that shares photos and footages of many of the attractions and exhibits. See how the lot blossomed since its opening day in 1912, visit the first GlamorTram in 1962 and journey through the lot, visiting such legendary props and special effect exhibits as the Bates Mansion, the Flash Flood, the Parting of the Sea and the Runaway Train, to name a few.
