Hollywood Entertainment Corp. (Nasdaq: HLYW), more commonly known as Hollywood Video, was a home video and video game rental shop company started in 1988. The chain was the largest direct competitor to Blockbuster Video until it was purchased by Movie Gallery in 2005.
Hollywood Video ceased operations in May 2010, when Movie Gallery, its parent company, declared Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Its last US store closed on July 31, 2010, whereas the last official one in Canada closed on August 8 of that year.
In October 2011, the HollywoodVideo.com site had been relaunched as a blog. While the website remains active, the last entry was made in October 2014.
