In the 1920s Hollywood became the movie capital of the world. Will it always be the film capital? Where are the movie stars nowadays? Can you still see them on the streets of Hollywood? Why, of course. Well, you can see them on this street right off Hollywood Boulevard, on a mural. Do you see any "stars" that you know? Who? Hollywood, is it reality or just fantasy? Today "Hollywood" still means "the movies". There are many old movie theaters along Hollywood Boulevard. Some of these old theaters are not movie theaters anymore. The Pantages has plays and musicals now. You can see that murals are everywhere in L.A. On Las Palmas Street right off Hollywood Blvd. there is a long newsstand. You can find newspapers and magazines from all over the world here. You can go to church in Hollywood too, believe it or not. There are lots of little theaters that do interesting plays, and of course restaurants on side streets off the main boulevards. They serve good pizza at this restaurant. Do you need some tourist information? Here's a visitor's center at Highland Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard. Notice the stars on the sidewalks of Hollywood Blvd. 1
3 Along Hollywood Blvd. you can visit one of the most interesting movie theaters in the world, the Chinese Theater. This movie theater opened in This is Hollywood fantasy at its best. Tourists who come from everywhere want to see and touch the footprints, handprints and signatures of over 160 movie stars. Do you see any names that you know? Do you want a photo of yourself here next to your favorite movie star's footprints? Are you ready for a tour of the studios or the "stars'" homes? Maybe another time. We need to hurry now. Do we have time for a drink at this hotel, or lunch at that Japanese restaurant in the Hollywood Hills? Not now. Let's get a quick hamburger here. Not far from Hollywood Blvd. in the Hollywood Hills you can find houses of every type. Highland Avenue is busy and noisy, but you can find peace and quiet in the hills. Right on Highland Avenue is the Il Vittoriale Theater. Some of the newest plays are at this theater. Just up the road from this theater on Cahuenga Boulevard is the Hollywood Bowl. We will come back here for a concert in the summer. Right now we are going up into the hills to take a drive along Mulholland Drive. Mulholland Dr. runs along the top of the Hollywood Hills, which are a part of the Santa Monica Mountains. The ride along Mulholland is especially pretty in the springtime after it rains. The California poppies, the state flower, come out in the spring. There's the Hollywood freeway below us going toward downtown. You can see downtown L.A. today. Sometimes you can't see it from here when it is too smoggy. But you can always see the Hollywood Bowl from this spot because it is right below us. There are wonderful outdoor concerts here in the summer. The L.A. Philharmonic plays here then. There are also jazz, rock, and other concerts here, too. There are over 17,000 seats at the Bowl. Let's go up there for a view of Hollywood. Look! There's the "Bowl" again with Hollywood behind it. There's another Hollywood Hills home. What a view they have! 2
4 On the other side of the Santa Monica Mountains is the San Fernando Valley. This is "Hollywood" too. This is the Universal Amphitheater, where there is entertainment all year. There are many movie and television studios there in Burbank. Universal, Disney, and the Burbank studios are all here, just on the other side of Hollywood. Here is another view of Universal City, a city within a city. There's the Hollywood freeway, this time going north into the "Valley". Let's continue west on Mulholland Drive. Let's get out of the car and walk a little and take a look at the interesting houses in the hills around us. Here comes a jogger. Well, let's be on our way again. Here's a view of the western part of the San Fernando Valley. Can you see the office buildings on Ventura Boulevard in the distance? There are also many fine jazz clubs along Ventura Blvd. Notice the swimming pools. Is anyone swimming in them? Well, you may want to swim, but remember, we are in a hurry.
