Behind the Scenes Casino Tour

See Where Hollywood Stars Once Roamed 

This 90-minute walking tour takes you behind the scenes to areas of the Casino once closed to the public for over 70 years. Go back stage to dressing rooms where stars prepared for their moment in the sun, and then step onto the Avalon Theatre stage to experience your own moment in the sun, as the lights go up and the curtain rises to a new star.  

Tour the projection room, where state-of-the-art equipment was installed to usher in the era of talking pictures. See the green rooms used by Hollywood’s biggest names from the golden age of film, including Errol Flynn, Cary Grant and more.

Visit the Wrigley family’s luxuriously-appointed private viewing room, where Cecil B. DeMille screened his latest films, and feel the big band vibe on the Casino Ballroom stage, where Benny Goodman earned his reputation as the King of Swing.
