Built in 1996 and formerly owned by Twentieth Century Fox, this studio was the main set for the epic blockbuster Titanic. The production facilities boast some of the world’s largest water tanks built for filming, one capable of handling 17 million gallons. The studios were built on 46 acres with more than 3,000 feet of oceanfront overlooking the Pacific Ocean near Rosarito, Baja California. Perhaps the studios most famous filming location is Tank 1, a massive infinite horizon pond that appears to be merged with the Pacific Ocean.

After filming Titanic, the facilities were used for the production of several other major Hollywood films such as, Tomorrow Never Dies and Pearl Harbor. In 2007, Fox sold the studios to a group of local businessmen.

Nowadays, the studio continues to be used for water tank filming by new streaming productions companies like Netflix.
