Hearst Castle is open and can be reached from the north via Highway 101 to Paso Robles. Due to the recent mudslides in Santa Barbara County, travelers from the Los Angeles area are advised to use Interstate 5.

“Hearst Castle – Building the Dream” is a movie that was produced exclusively for the Hearst Castle Theater. Breathtaking original cinematography combined with vintage clips and stills from the 1920s and 30s allows the construction and history of the Castle to come to life on a five-story screen.

Tickets for this original 40-minute movie are included with the purchase of every daily tour. Shows begin every 45 minutes, with the first showing at 8:15 am.
