Few stars walk Hollywood’s streets except on premiere evenings, and you’ll have to venture into “The Valley” if you want to tour the studios . It’s an odd irony that what the world perceives to be the epicenter of the film industry has little left of that industry beyond its tourist destinations.
The only “real” movie business remaining are the blockbuster premieres at the major movie theaters here. Most of the other destinations range from the oversold to the downright kitschy. But still, if you’ve ever had a soft spot for Hollywood glamour or American camp, come check out the crowds and bustle of downtown Tinseltown. (And be aware that no local would ever call it that.)
Hollywood is also famous for its street corners. While the most stuff sits at Hollywood and Highland, the best-known named corner is certainly Hollywood and Vine.
