True to a point. There are several physical production studios in Hollywood itself. Paramount is the only major studio company in Hollywood. The majority are in the North Hollywood/ Burbank area. While Sony Pictures Studio and several other companies are also in the Santa Monica/ Culver City area.
The Grove has far more foot traffic than any of the other shopping areas where Apple Stores are located. 4th Street shopping district may be the closest to The Grove while The Beverly Center is dead much of the time.
I didn't realize that there is life east of the 405.
