Driving Downtown - Hollywood 4K - USA

    Starting Point: Hollywood Boulevard goo.gl/maps/hzmbLQxB3gM2 .
    Hollywood is an ethnically diverse, densely populated, relatively low-income neighborhood in the central region of Los Angeles, California. It is notable as the home of the U.S. film industry, including several of its historic studios, and its name has come to be a shorthand reference for the industry and the people in it.
    Hollywood was a small community in 1870 and was incorporated as a municipality in 1903. It was consolidated with the city of Los Angeles in 1910, and soon thereafter a prominent film industry emerged, eventually becoming the most recognizable film industry in the world.
    Motion Picture Industry
    Four major film companies - Paramount, Warner Bros., RKO, and Columbia - had studios in Hollywood, as did several minor companies and rental studios. In the 1920s, Hollywood was the fifth-largest industry in the nation.
    Hollywood became known as Tinseltown because of the glittering image of the movie industry. Hollywood has since become a major center for film study in the United States.
    In 1923, the Hollywood sign was erected in the Hollywood Hills, reading "HOLLYWOODLAND," its purpose being to advertise a housing development. In 1949, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce entered a contract with the City of Los Angeles to repair and rebuild the sign. The contract stipulated that "LAND" be removed to spell "HOLLYWOOD" and reflect the district, not the housing development.
    During the early 1950s, the Hollywood Freeway was constructed through the northeast corner of Hollywood.
    The Capitol Records Building on Vine Street, just north of Hollywood Boulevard, was built in 1956, and the Hollywood Walk of Fame was created in 1958 as a tribute to artists and other significant contributors to the entertainment industry. The official opening was on February 8, 1960.
    The Hollywood Boulevard Commercial and Entertainment District was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.
    The Dolby Theatre, which opened in 2001 as the Kodak Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center mall, is the home of the Oscars. The mall is located where the historic Hollywood Hotel once stood.
    After years of serious decline in the 1980s, many Hollywood landmarks were threatened with demolition. Columbia Square, at the northeast corner of Sunset Boulevard and Gower Street, is part of the ongoing rebirth of Hollywood. The Art Deco-style studio complex completed in 1938, which was once the Hollywood headquarters for CBS, became home to a new generation of broadcasters when cable television networks MTV, Comedy Central, BET and Spike TV consolidated their offices here in 2014 as part of a $420-million office, residential and retail complex. Since 2000, Hollywood has been increasingly gentrified due to revitalization by private enterprise and public planners.

      J Utah ,I visited Hollywood
      August of 1980. Mann's theater, had lunch at the Vine Street Brown Derby
      also had coffee just around corner from Manns at the Howard Johnson's diner.
      Would like to know what theater on Hollywood Boulevard, at that time, had a long red in color carpet with railing on each side that went from the sidewalk back to the theater's entrance.Would you might know the theaters name? I recall that
      "The Empire Strikes Back"
      was showing at that theater.
      post script : Enjoyed your

    Hollywood is more than a film brand, and it is more than a famous company. Hollywood is a place where entertainment was redefined. Hollywood is a leader in the field of the film industry. It redefines entertainment, which means we're all available to know a new world that is not far away in the future. We knew it because of the Hollywood culture. I love Hollywood.

    Great helpful videos, I always study them carefully before taking up self driving a car in a new country, gives a great idea of what to expect once we are on the road, BTW where is your camera mounted, inside or outside the car since I don't see the usual windshield glare/Reflections in the video which we normally get when shooting from inside the car.

    I absolutely love this piece of film. I assume it is a December late afternoon at dusk, having heard Christmas carols from the side of the road at the beginning. One question I have about the film industry - if the film studio system disappeared many years ago, why do films made by British production companies with British actors and directors still carry the Hollywood label. Is this political and financial?
