    Re: Why isn't the Mann's Chinese theater in Hollywood Land?

    Sid Graumann opened The Egyptian Theatre first in 1922, followed by The El Capitan Theatre and The Chinese Theatre a few years later. All three have thankfully been restored and show films daily.

    Again, our current-day Hollywood is freeway close and doesn't need to have dinkier replicas in neighboring O.C.

    Nor do I see a need to transplant a Florida attraction that showcases other studios' famous catalog titles. There are wax museums for that here and an ultimate Hollywood filmland tribute coming, hopefully soon, in the Academy's museum in the Miracle Mile whose collection no one could hope to compete with.

    perhaps they could build an original designed theater incorporating elements of all the classic movie palaces -

    Plus there's the Million Dollar Theater in downtown LA, which is also a Sid Grauman theater and is open semi-regularly and is accessible on tours. If someone wants to see a Grauman theater in Southern CA they have four examples of the real McCoy. There's also the DeMille barn, there are the various studio tours and there's the Hollywood Museum, all covering our film heritage.

    The Hyperion right now is a replica of the historic Los Angeles Theater that is almost never open--that's a nod to the past that is worthwhile, IMHO.

    They should have just made The Earful Tower Watertower the icon instead of the ugly hat. It makes more sense because almost all major studios have water towers. Such as Paramount or Warner Bros.
