We visited on 11th September this year and found the building to be a wonderful reminder of old Hollywood. The building itself is of historical significance as although it was moved some time ago from a different part of L.A., the first feature length movie...More

Just a ten minute walk or so from Hollywood /Highland station, and the tourist mayhem of Hollywood Boulevard, in a quiet corner of the Hollywood Bowl parking lot. This is the barn used for the making of Hollywood's first feature film, 1913's The Squaw Man,...More

This is a great antidote to the circus that is Hollywood and Highland. It is small, and very interesting, in the original barn (which has moved three times) that the first studio was set up in by Cecil B de Mille. The docents and volunteers...More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
