"Hearst Castle - Building the Dream"

Featuring Breathtaking Cinematography & Vintage Movie Clips

The Hearst Castle Theater is located in the Hearst Castle Visitor Center, just 10 minutes from our hotels in Cambria. A 5-story movie screen shows “Hearst Castle – Building the Dream” every 45 minutes starting at 8:15 am. It's complimentary for guests who have purchased a Grand Rooms Tour, the Upstairs Suites Tour, and the Cottages and Kitchen Tour.

Although the film is not included with the Evening Tour, those who wish to see the movie can do so at a discounted price of $6 per adult and $4 per child (ages 5-12).

Hot Tip: We recommend getting to the Visitor Center early to see this movie before your guided tour of the Castle, to learn about history of William Randolph Hearst and his Castle.
