As the name implies, this is a Hollywood themed operation, with movie memorabilia, posters and other decorations strewn around the casino and entrance pavilion. But who comes to look at that? As far as games go, the casino offers a decent two-deck blackjack game, but the dealers will shuffle up if they suspect you of counting, and they suspect everyone. You are probably better off fighting your way against the six-deck shoe. Slot payback rates are comparable with other casinos in the region, and tend to change depending on how the competition is doing. You can also play slots, Caribbean stud poker and press your luck in the "double down" video poker machines. The steak house is pretty good, but do not expect a complimentary meal from these guys, not even for the buffet. For entertainment, there is the casino-owned Paramount Arts Center across the Fox River.
