Hollywood Branch Renovation

 

Our Hollywood Branch is our oldest and busiest.  In the beginning, First Entertainment only occupied a single suite (the current branch), but over time, the credit union grew to fill the entire building. Eventually, a second building was added to accommodate our rapid growth. The two buildings now house a full-service branch, Investment Services, MBIS Insurance Services, Autoland, and our entire corporate headquarters, supporting over half of our 250+ employees! 

6735 Forest Lawn will always be our home, but it's time for a change. This winter, we'll be reinvigorating the flagship branch with a chic new interior and an iconic new exterior. 

Notable New Features include:

  • A brand new canopied entrance from the ATM parking lot
  • Innovative new PTMs (personal teller machines) for convenient transactions
  • A “Green Room” refreshment station
  • A flexible, modern lounge that doubles as a seminar space (or movie theater)

Here's a glimpse of some of the concepts we've been cooking up (click for a closer view):

Construction will begin on September 30th, but not to worry! While the area is under construction, a temporary branch will be set up directly across the lobby (currently home to our MBIS Insurance and Autoland services).

Here are a few of the alterations you can expect during the renovation period:

  • A temporary branch will be operating on the opposite side of our lobby. It will be just as full-service as its predecessor, so feel free to stop on by!
  • Night drop services will be permanently discontinued as of September 30th.
  • Parking may be impacted. Be advised that valet service is available in the member parking garage on the west side of the building.

We hope you're as excited as we are to bring this new branch into being!
