Fodor's Review

The mere mention of this intersection inspires images of a street corner bustling with movie stars, hopefuls, and moguls arriving on foot or in Duesenbergs and Rolls-Royces. In the old days this was the hub of the radio and movie industry: film stars like Gable and Garbo hustled in and out of their agents' office buildings (some now converted to luxury condos) at these fabled cross streets. Even the Red Line Metro station here keeps up the Hollywood theme, with a Wizard of Oz–style yellow brick road, vintage movie projectors, and old film reels on permanent display. Sights visible from this intersection include the Capitol Records Building, the Avalon Theater, the Pantages Theater, and the W Hollywood Hotel.

Pantages Theatre. Just steps from the fabled intersection of Hollywood and Vine, this Hollywood Boulevard landmark is an Art Deco palace originally built as a vaudeville showcase in 1930. Once host of the Academy Awards, it's now home to such Broadway shows

as The Lion King, Hairspray, Wicked, and The Book of Mormon. 6233 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, 90028. 323/468–1770. www.hollywoodpantages.com.
