Hollywood Gets Back to Business

Tag: Community

It's been a long, difficult year for all of us. While the pandemic has had drastic effects on our lives and our neighborhoods, the light at the end of the tunnel has become visible. As more people are vaccinated and businesses adapt to ensure safety and health measures are met, many people are beginning to get back out and do the things we all used to do. We are excited each day by the new possibilities as our businesses open or re-open in Hollywood. Here are some of the notable business re-openings that are making Hollywood feel more like Hollywood!

The theater will adhere to all CinemaSafe guidelines as well and the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health’s Protocols for Movie Theaters.

What we're still looking forward to...

There are a number of businesses that we are anxiously awaiting to re-open their doors, as soon as they are able to do so. While many factors contribute to when and how a business can safely allow customers back inside, we are confident that these businesses are working to determine how and when they will come back.
