Rise of the home video market
The 1980s and 1990s saw another significant
development. The full acceptance of home video by
studios opened a vast new business to exploit. Films
such as The Secret of NIMH and The Shawshank
Redemption, which performed poorly in their theatrical
run, were now able to find success in the video market.
It also saw the first generation of film makers with
access to video tapes emerge. Directors such as Quentin
Tarantino and P.T. Anderson had been able to view
thousands of films and produced films with vast
numbers of references and connections to previous
works.

These parallel versions had a lower budget, were shot at
night and were directed by second-line American
directors who did not speak the foreign language. The
Spanish-language crews included people like Luis
Buñuel, Enrique Jardiel Poncela, Xavier Cugat and
Edgar Neville. The productions were not very successful
in their intended markets, due to the following reasons:
The lower budgets were apparent.
Many theater actors had no previous experience in
cinema.
The original movies were often second-rate themselves,
since studios expected that the top productions would
sell by themselves.
The mix of foreign accents (Castilian, Mexican, and
Chilean for example in the Spanish case) was odd for
the audiences.
Some markets lacked sound-equipped theaters.

Hollywood Boulevard, taken from the Kodak Theatre.
On January 22, 1947, the first commercial television
station west of the Mississippi River, KTLA, began
operating in Hollywood. In December of that year, The
Public Prosecutor became the first network television
series to be filmed in Hollywood. In the 1950s, music
recording studios and offices began moving into
Hollywood. Other businesses, however, continued to
migrate to different parts of the Los Angeles area,
primarily to Burbank. Much of the movie industry
remained in Hollywood, although the district's outward
appearance changed.

Modern cinema
Some of Hollywood's blockbuster action heroes from
the 1980s and 1990s
The drive to produce a spectacle on the movie screen
has largely shaped American cinema ever since.
Spectacular epics which took advantage of new
widescreen processes had been increasingly popular
from the 1950s onwards. Since then, American films
have become increasingly divided into two categories:
Blockbusters and independent films. Studios have
focused on relying on a handful of extremely expensive
releases every year in order to remain profitable. Such
blockbusters emphasize spectacle, star power, and high
production value, all of which entail an enormous
budget. Blockbusters typically rely upon star power and
massive advertising to attract a huge audience. A
successful blockbuster will attract an audience large
enough to offset production costs and reap considerable
profits. Such productions carry a substantial risk of
failure, and most studios release blockbusters that both
over- and underperform in a year.

The Kodak Theatre, which opened in 2001 on
Hollywood Boulevard at Highland Avenue, where the
historic Hollywood Hotel once stood, has become the
new home of the Oscars.
While motion picture production still occurs within the
Hollywood district, most major studios are actually
located elsewhere in the Los Angeles region. Paramount
Pictures is the only major studio still physically located
within Hollywood. Other studios in the district include
the aforementioned Jim Henson (formerly Chaplin)
Studios, Sunset Gower Studios, and Raleigh Studios.

Lina Fidler Info :Hollywood is a neighborhood in Los
Angeles, California - situated west-northwest of
Downtown Los Angeles. Due to its fame and cultural
identity as the historical center of movie studios and
movie stars, the word "Hollywood" is often used as a
metonym of American cinema, and is often
interchangeably used to refer to the greater Los Angeles
area in general. The nicknames StarStruck Town and
Tinseltown refer to Hollywood and its movie industry.
Today, much of the movie industry has dispersed into
surrounding areas such as the Westside neighborhood,
but significant auxiliary industries, such as editing,
effects, props, post-production and lighting companies
remain in Hollywood, as does the backlot of Paramount
Pictures.

Contact Lina Fidler Flanking the west side of Highland
Avenue, the structure fronted on Prospect Avenue. Still
a dusty, unpaved road, it was regularly graded and
graveled. The Hotel was to become internationally
known and was the center of the civic and social life and
home of the stars for many years. His company was
developing and selling one of the early residential areas,
the Ocean View Tract. Whitley did much to promote
the area. He paid out many thousands of dollars for
electric lighting. The lighting ran for several blocks
down Prospect Avenue. including bringing electricity
and building a bank, as well as a road into the
Cahuenga Pass. Whitley's land was centered on
Highland Avenue.
