Hollywood has survived serious threats over its 110-year history: the advent of television; consolidation and conglomeration; and tent-pole franchises created to sell merchandise. Then, Netflix started its streaming service in 2007, putting Hollywood on the defensive as new technologies threatened its dominant business model. Then, the COVID pandemic shuttered theaters.

New York Times reporter Brooks Barnes delves into the sea of adversity plaguing Hollywood to take the pulse of the dream-making industry.
