Sullivan Studio Backlot

Sullivan Entertainment owns and operates a 60,000-square-foot studio and 6-acre backlot in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. The suburban facility includes four soundstages with permanent lighting grids, furnished production offices, wardrobe facilities, an art department, and set construction facilities. The complex has provided the headquarters for the creation of Sullivan’s library of movies and series over the last thirty years.

The period backlot is the largest permanent set of its kind in Canada and has been dressed and re-dressed for periods ranging from 1850s urban America to 1930s small-town Canada, as well as for contemporary Salzburg, Austria. The complex has also been headquarters for non-Sullivan productions such as Mr. Bojangles, Sounder, Eating The Bones, Mutant X, Quake, Red, The Border, Train 48, What Girls Learn, The Lois Wilson Story, Politics is Cruel, and The Triangle, along with long-running television series Paradise Falls, Metropia, What’s-Up-Warthogs, Charms for the Easy Life, and Murdoch Mysteries, for production companies such as Disney, Showtime, MGM, Alliance, Scholastic, CBC, and Shaftesbury.

The studio backlot includes a main street, town square, park, railway station, theatre, hotel, and bank along with a myriad of back-alley ways and period storefronts that facilitate 360 degrees of continuous shooting distance; alongside the convenience of interior standing sets.
