Golden Era Productions is an organization operated by the Church of Scientology that produces promotional material for the Church's membership, as well as many of the restored lectures, E-meters, training films and other materials related to the works of church founder L. Ron Hubbard.[1]

Originally known as Source Productions, Golden Era Productions is staffed by Sea Organization members. It is situated on the 500-acre (2.0 km2) area called Gold Base in unincorporated Riverside County, California, near San Jacinto; and Hemet; Gold Base serves as the headquarters of the church.[2][3][4][5]
