Hollywood & Highland
is both an intersection at the heart of Hollywood and the shopping complex, Hollywood & Highland Center
at that location. There is so much to do at the intersection of Hollywood and Highland that you could easily spend a couple days right there within walking distance.
The Hollywood & Highland Center
was the redevelopment project that was built up around Grauman's Chinese Theatre
(now TCL Chinese Theatre) in 2001, sparking the renaissance of Hollywood as the center of LA glamour and nightlife.
In addition to the Chinese Theatre
with its Forecourt of the Stars
, the intersection of Hollywood and Highland was already home to the Hollywood Walk of Fame
, the historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel
, the Hollywood Museum
in the former Max Factor Building, the Hollywood Wax Museum
, Guinness World Records Museum
and Ripley's Believe It Or Not Odditorium
with the Hollywood Bowl
just up Highland.
The Hollywood & Highland Center includes the Dolby Theatre
, formerly known as the Kodak Theatre, a permanent home for the Academy Awards
, and the Loews Hollywood Hotel
as well as multiple levels of shopping, dining and entertainment options.continued...
