Hollywood Entertainment District

More than a hundred entertainment, commercial, and retail buildings in Hollywood’s commercial core along Hollywood Boulevard were recognized for their historical value and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. It is located in Los Angeles, CA.

The neighborhood is located along Hollywood Boulevard for about 12 blocks and features 10 different theaters. Although its first theater (the Hollywood Theater, now known as the Guinness World Records Museum) was erected in 1913, Hollywood’s commercial core didn’t begin to gain importance until the early 1920s. High-rise buildings can be seen at key junctions, with one- and two-story retail buildings filling in the rest of the blocks.

The majority of the district’s historic structures date back to the years 1915-1939. The Hollywood Walk of Fame Link opens in new window is located in this area and stretches over 1.3 miles from the intersection of Hollywood & La Brea to that of Hollywood & North Gower. The area is known for its abundance of neon signs.

The Hollywood Partnership Link opens in new window is in charge of the Hollywood Entertainment District, which includes the area from the western end of the LaBrea Avenue Gateway to the eastern end of the Hollywood 101 Freeway along the world-famous Walk of Fame and historic Hollywood Boulevard. The District is the heart of Hollywood, the entertainment capital of the world and the area where the motion picture industry was born. The Hollywood Partnership has a 5-year Strategic Plan called Hollywood in Focus that was approved by the Board of Directors in 2019.

It’s no surprise that this section of Hollywood Boulevard remains a popular place to do some serious retail therapy. More than twenty-five restaurants, twenty boutiques, a multiplex movie theater, and the Loews Hollywood hotel can all be found at the Hollywood and Highland Center. The $94 million Kodak Theatre project was initiated to bring the Academy Awards back to Hollywood, the city where the ceremony was first held. In 2012, it was rebranded as the Dolby Theatre, and it now plays host to a variety of live performances throughout the year. A new addition to the Hollywood and Vine intersection is the W Hollywood Hotel. Many of the blocks in this area feature multiple eateries on the ground floor and hundreds of apartments or offices above.
