On the east side of Hollywood, on the other side of Western Avenue, one block south of Sunset Boulevard, hidden behind the now-abandoned Deluxe Studios, the giant film-processing and postproduction house that had been there since 1916 and finally shut down in 2014 when everything went digital, it's Russia – the magnificent Holy Transfiguration Russian Orthodox Church. It's stunning. This is Russian Hollywood, even if the neighbors aren't happy about it. ~ Thursday, June 13, 2019
