The Universal Monsters have taken over Production Central at Universal CityWalk Hollywood in the West Coast version of a “Tribute Store.”

Production Central has previously acted as a Tribute Store for Halloween Horror Nights. It’s not as highly themed as the Universal Studios Florida Tribute Stores but still features cool set pieces and props.

The archway around the store’s entrance is green and rippled like dark ocean waves.

The marquee behind the Production Central sign features an image of the Creature from the Black Lagoon, the Bride of Frankenstein, Frankenstein’s Monster, Dracula, and the Wolfman.

Immediately upon entering, guests will encounter a sarcophagus to the left. This corner has sandstone walls resembling an Egyptian tomb with wooden crates as the cash wrap. It’s reminiscent of the Mummy.

To the right are gray, leafless trees. One is almost life-size and another sits on top of a merchandise display. Printed silhouettes of dead trees are on the walls.

The tree on the merchandise display appears to be growing over moss, rocks, and a box. There is also a rope and a vintage flashlight.

The woods seemingly represent the Wolfman and the Creature. All of the merchandise features Universal Monsters, too. We’ve previously reported on this Universal Monsters merchandise.

Frankenstein's lab tech

The next corner is clearly inspired by Frankenstein’s lab. It has stone walls with various baubles, skulls, and vintage technology — like this Zenith radio.

The last section also features stone walls, but more Gothic architecture in the form of archways around displays and doors. There is a circular black iron chandelier hanging from the ceiling. Red candles are mounted on the walls.

Dracula props

This space is inspired by Dracula. Atop one set of shelves are black and red books, dying flowers, and more skulls.
