The neighborhood is a mix of residential and commercial and has plenty of restaurants and coffeehouses, a piano bar, and a hipster tiki bar called Psycho Suzie's Motor Lounge. Three-bedroom, two-bath houses can be found here for about $200,000.

CPED Asks for Comments on Hollywood Redevelopment Plan

In order to pursue a renovation of the Hollywood Theater, several procedural steps must be taken. One of those steps is establishing a City-sanctioned project area. The Department of Community Planning and Economic Development (CPED) has put together some specifics about the project area, the goal of the project, and some other guidelines. Together, all that info is called the Hollywood Theatre Redevelopment Plan.

This plan only defines how the project can move forward in general terms. It does not cover exact details of how the Hollywood structure might be renovated, nor does it dictate what will become of the vacant lot across Johnson Street.

Hollywood Theater Architectural Assessment

ANA’s delegation to the current Hollywood Theater Task Force (HTF2) is working toward a viable reuse for our neighborhood’s most notable historic asset. The HTF2’s main goal is to bring the building alive and make it a positive contributor to our Johnson Street commercial node. Any solution considered must not compromise the building’s potential for an eventual ultimate use as an entertainment venue. When community and economic conditions will support it, we want the Theater to become a theater again.
