The Barbra Streisand Scoring Stage is one of the largest motion picture scoring venues in the world. The main scoring area has remained unchanged since the 1930s to preserve the unmatched acoustics and unique ambiance that have impressed generations of filmmakers around the globe.

An MGM shooting stage until the late twenties, one of its first scoring projects was The Wizard of Oz (1939, Herbert Stothart). Since that auspicious beginning, the stage has been primarily dedicated to the art of film scoring and has produced some of the most famous scores of all time, including Gone with the Wind (1939, Max Steiner); Anchors Aweigh (1945, George Stoll); An American in Paris (1951, Johnny Green and Saul Chaplin); Ben Hur (1959, Miklos Rozsa); Lawrence of Arabia (1962, Maurice Jarre); and Doctor Zhivago (1965, Maurice Jarre).
