PHOTOS: Classic Hollywood Studios Filmstrip Logo Sign Removed from Center Stage at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

We welcome you to the Hollywood that never was—and never will be, what with all the changes going on at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Gone is the classic filmstrip sign that graced this meadow area by the end of Hollywood Boulevard, near Center Stage.

The filmstrip sign used to feature the park’s now-old logo along a filmstrip covered with stars, with an additional burst of stars on the side.

At night, the sign would illuminate in shades of blue and yellow. This was one of my favorite spots at Disney’s Hollywood Studios during After Hours events as they’d play the classic old Hollywood background music, creating a cute, old-timey ambiance.

Currently, the area sits vacant, with nothing more than the fresh smell of mulch taking its place.

We’ll keep an eye on this area to see whether a new sign replaces the now-removed one, perhaps with the newer logo instead. With all the changes taking over the park with the upcoming opening of Galaxy’s Edge, we’re sure they aren’t through yet.

That’s a good point for the current generation of kids. Maybe the new sign will be an SD card with the new logo on it. The “kids” should know what that is.

The medium used by directors like Tarantino, Spielberg, Nolan, Anderson, and Apatow when making a movie. Also those that film in IMAX – like a recent movie you may have heard of in Avengers: Endgame. The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi were also both shot on film. I could go on, but you probably get the point.

Hollywood Studios is a hashed up, big ole hot mess right now. While the parking and entrance is new, and nice, the number of construction projects and attractions closed is horrible. With everything they are changing they should of called it Star War Studios or something, and the new land is wonderfully attractive, but the ride was ,to me, just a hands on Star Tours. The rest of it is a limited number of places to spend money for foid or merch. With all the new construction in all the parks I hope First time visitors don’t judge WDW on… Read more »

I hope they bring back that beautiful sign or something at least as good. It’s gotten to the point where I wonder what good thing Disney World will destroy next.
