Culver City is a city in western Los Angeles County, California. As of the 2000 census, the city had a population of 38,816. The community is mostly surrounded by the city of Los Angeles, but also has a border with unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. The mayor is Andrew Weissman. Since the 1920s, Culver City has been a significant center for motion picture and later television production, in part because it was the home of MGM Studios.
