Inceville Studios at Sunset Blvd and Pacific Coast Hwy, circa late 1910s

Inceville Studios at Sunset Blvd and Pacific Coast Hwy, circa late 1910sEarly Hollywood pioneer, Thomas Ince, soon outgrew his facilities in Edendale and relocated to a spot that would have been quite remote—where Sunset Boulevard met the Pacific Ocean at what’s now the Pacific Coast Highway. Once he’d secured the land, he proceeded to build what became known as “Inceville” which featured sound stages, offices, printing labs, commissary, dressing rooms, props houses, and elaborate sets. This photo shows us what Inceville looked like circa late 1910s.

When I looked it up on Google Maps, I was surprised to find that location is still identified as “Inceville.”

One Response to Inceville Studios at Sunset Blvd and Pacific Coast Hwy, circa late 1910s

  1. Sunset Blvd was my all-time fav drive – from one end to the other. So many incredible sights to be seen. I think the original Ince studio was turned into Polar Palace ice rink (near Paramount Pictures) in about 1926. I taught there until the rink burned (May, 1963) and we moved to San Pedro and the ice rink there (Olympic Ice Arena), where we became the majority owners until we sold & moved to Carpinteria.
