Go Out on the Town
Hollywood is synonymous with the film industry and is the backdrop for fabulous red-carpet premieres and awards shows. Entertainment landmarks like TCL (formerly Grauman’s) Chinese Theatre, Dolby Theatre, and the Capitol Records Building stand tall. The surrounding sidewalks glitter with iconic names in stars and are packed with street characters dressed as Darth Vader, Jack Sparrow, and Spider-Man. Experience a film at the upscale ArcLight Cinemas, live music at the Hollywood Bowl amphitheater, comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, bottle service at the DJ-filled nightclubs, and the thrill of moviemaking at Universal Studios.
