Foxploration bows

Gawkers get behind-the-scenes look at studio

After “Titanic” was released, multitudes of tourists showed up at Fox’s Rosarito, Mexico-based studio to steal a peek at the tank facility and sets where the movie was made. Many expected the studio to increase security to keep the fans out. Instead, Fox decided to invite them in.

On May 19, the studio bowed Foxploration, a movie park that offers an inside look at a working movie studio.

Located 30 miles south of San Diego, the park include film sets, prop rooms, theaters and exhibit pavilions such as the 18,800-square-foot Titanic Expo, which combines historical info with movie memorabilia.

According to Simon Bax, prexy of studio operations and chief financial officer of Fox Filmed Entertainment, Foxploration will not only be a place to repurpose assets from its previously released films. “We also plan to use the space to feature and promote upcoming movies,” he says.

Film aficionados can even take a tour of the adjacent production facility to check out pics in progress. Recent films shot there include “Pearl Harbor,” “Deep Blue Seas” and “Tomorrow Never Dies.”

Foxploration is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Ticket prices are $12 for adults and $9 for seniors and children.
