Hollywood is both the name of a specific neighborhood in the city of Los Angeles and a term for the film industry that's located there. Maybe one day you'll direct a film in Hollywood!
If your life goal is to make it to Hollywood, you've probably set your sights on being a movie star or screenwriter (rather than simply hoping to list Hollywood as your return address). These days, a Hollywood film is any big-budget American movie. Hollywood was originally a ranch established in 1886, which became a farming village in 1903. Just seven years later, barns began to be converted into movie studios, and the rest is history.
