Hollywood is an incredibly popular district of Los Angeles that is widely known around the world due to its tight connection with cinema industry. Initially the territory of Hollywood was nothing but a rancho. Then the owners of rancho created a main street that steadily filled with big houses, turning the street into a prosperous and prestigious place for living. The owners started charity activities and expanded the territory of the rancho, building churches, schools and libraries.
The first Hollywood movie was made in 1911 in the old tavern of the town. That was the beginning of the glorious history of Hollywood as the most famous area in cinema industry. Movie making was fast developing and this led to creation of numerous clubs, restaurants, banks and other organizations. Living quarters of the town were replaced by commercial buildings, which architecture reflected the trends of that time – craving for success, making building look quite playfully in combination with decorative elements.
Nowadays Hollywood is a so called movie making factory where are located numerous film studios, conducted movie award ceremonies and festivals. This is a town where is created the famous Fame Valley. Starting from 1960 the names of best actors and actresses are engraved on it.
