Triangle Motion Picture Studios (Sony/formerly MGM)

By 1915, Thomas H. Ince was very powerful and one of the best-known producer-directors. Harry Culver convinced Ince to move his "Inceville" Studios from the beach to Culver City. That same year, Ince partnered with D.W. Griffith and Mack Sennett to join the Triangle Motion Picture Company based on their prestige as producers. Triangle (from an aerial point of view the property took a triangular shape) built their large studios at 10202 W. Washington Blvd. (present-day site of Sony Pictures Studios). The very first Culver City movie studio began to take shape in the form of a Greek colonnade – the impressive entrance that still stands today fronting Washington Boulevard and is an historical landmark.
