Entertainment
“Great place to walk, shop, and play. Get a HOLLYWOOD feeling with the magic of this place. I grew up here and there are often live musicians/entertainers, fun things for adults/kids, huge movie theater. There is a free tram that takes you up from Lankershim street and the bus station. BUT BEWARE PARKING IN THE BUS PARKING LOT (they will give tickets. Youre better off taking uber/lyft or take lankershem south of Ventura blvd finding a street with no signs (1nice 10 min walk through the neighborhood. ”
