Klasky Csupo getting ready for a big move
After the success of "The Rugrats Movie" and plenty of hit television shows, Klasky Csupo is relocating to a bigger building at 6353-57 Sunset Boulevard, across from the Hollywood Cinerama Dome. The 6-floor, 95,000 square ft., state-of-the-art glass and steel structure was originally designed as an auto showroom for Mercedes-Benz, but will now hold up to 500 Klasky Csupo employees. Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan says, "This is great news for the heart of Hollywood. The commitment of Klasky Csupo, one of our city's most creative and successful entertainment companies, is another important step in the revitalization of Hollywood." Klasky Csupo, who is currently located just a few blocks away from the new location, is dedicated to staying in Hollywood to "play a major role in the rejuvenation of this legendary city," as co-founder Gabor Csupo puts it. Renovations on the new site will begin this month with a move-in date scheduled for July. The facilities will feature high-powered computer graphics workstations, post production facilities, as well as a recording studio.
