Of all the attractions found in Los Angeles CA, the movie industry is by far the most popular. Millions of tourists flock to the City of Angels every year, hoping to get a glimpse of their favorite celebrities or simply visit the city's many iconic locations. From the Hollywood Walk of Fame to the Griffith Park Observatory, where scenes from "Rebel Without a Cause" were shot, Los Angeles is truly the movie industry capital of the world.
Moviemaking Locales and Other Los Angeles CA Attractions
When it comes to movie landmarks, Los Angeles is full of them. The Grauman's Chinese Theater on Hollywood Boulevard stands as majestically as it did when first opened in 1927. Nearby, the Kodak Theater is home to the industry's yearly awards ceremony: the Oscars. A couple of miles away on Sunset Boulevard is the Beverly Hills Hotel. The Pink Palace was home (and still is the place of choice) for many A-list celebrities looking to hide from the glaring eye of the paparazzi.
All of the major studios are located throughout Los Angeles. Warner Brothers and Disney reside in Burbank, while Universal is in Studio City. Fox is nestled in Century City, while Sony Pictures' sprawling lot lies in Culver City. Visitors can tour a number of these locations on certain days, while Universal has a popular theme park that is open throughout the year.
Of all the Los Angeles CA attractions, none are as iconic as the Hollywood sign. Standing guard in the hills above the city, the sign is visible from a number of key locations. Although it is no longer accessible, there are a few places that are close enough for visitors to get excellent pictures.
