Literally a month ago the largest film studio in America had its grand opening ceremony. This studio is owned by a black man, Tyler Perry to be exact! The ceremony honored legendary African Americans within the film and television industry, some being Oprah Winfrey, Spike Lee, Will Smith, Whoopi Goldberg, Cicely Tyson, and the names continue to flow as all these actors received their own sound stage at Tyler Perry Studios.

If you were unfortunate enough to not get that golden ticket to the actual ceremony well today is your lucky day. Architectural Digest released a new “Open Door” episode starring Tyler Perry touring his studios, even Madea made an appearance. Not only do we get to see Madea’s home and her classic deuce and a quarter, but Tyler shows us historic homes, AND a four sided mansion or better yet four mansions in one BIG mansion! I know you probably cannot imagine it so why don’t you tune in and watch the video above!

Tyler Perry Studio tours are set to start Spring 2020. If you are interested in hearing more about a group tour with The Reel Effect make sure you sign up for our newsletter!
