Default Hollywood Street Closures for Oscar® Week

Hollywood Street Closures for Oscar® Week

Beverly Hills, CA — To ensure public safety, support security strategies and facilitate the production of the 82nd Academy Awards®, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the City of Los Angeles have finalized street closure plans around the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood.

To accommodate the construction of press risers, fan bleachers and pre-show stages along the Academy Awards red carpet, Hollywood Boulevard will be closed between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive beginning at 10 p.m. on Sunday, February 28. It will reopen at 6 a.m. on March 1, close again at 10 p.m. that same day, and then remain closed until 6 a.m. on Tuesday, March 9.

MTA subway trains will bypass the Hollywood & Highland station after the last regularly scheduled train on Saturday, March 6, until 6 a.m. Monday, March 8. Service at the station will resume with the first scheduled train after 6 a.m.

Between Sunday, February 28, and Sunday, March 7, the day of the Academy Awards presentation, additional streets and sidewalks will be closed for varying periods.

Details of the closures and maps of affected areas are available from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the Sixth and the Thirteenth District City Council field offices, at www.navigatehollywood.com, and on the Academy’s Web site at www.oscars.org/closures.

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2009 will be presented on Sunday, March 7, 2010, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, and televised live by the ABC Television Network beginning at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET.
