A Life In The Theater

The Cinerama Dome, Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, Ca.  circa 1980 "The Blue Lagoon" opened there that summer.

Mann's Chinese Theater, Hollywood Blvd. Los Angeles, Ca. Formally Grauman's Chinese Theater and built in 1927, it was purchased by the Mann Theaters chain in 1973 and maintained the "Mann's" title until 2001 when it returned to the Grauman's name and eventually lost its forecourt box-office.

John Huston's "Annie" opened at Mann's Chinese in 1982

A 1981 photo of The HOLLYWOOD THEATER Located on Hollywood Blvd. near Highland in Los Angeles, Ca. It was built in 1938 but was converted to The Guinness World of Records Museum in 1994. Showing movies like "Dragonslayer" certainly couldn't have helped.
