German immigrant Carl Laemmle incorporated the Universal Film and Manufacturing Company on April 30, 1912 in New York. On March 14, 1915, the 230-acre motion picture production facility, Universal City Studios, opened its doors for business in California.
Also known as Universal Pictures, it is the oldest movie studio in America and the third oldest in the world that is still in production. The first feature length movie, Damon and Pythias, was released in 1914.
