    Talking Universal Studios Hollywood building Carthay Circle Theater in the New Main Plaza

    Wow, this is going to be interesting...

    According to Screamscape:

    (6/18/13) This news will shock you… but I’m told that the new iconic tower building going up inside Universal Studios Hollywood right now will be a replica of the Carthay Circle Theater building. Yep… the same famous lost Hollywood landmark that Disney chose to build and open as the [COLOR=#1F44AB !important]centerpiece[/COLOR] of their new Buena Vista Street section of California Adventure last year. While the historic importance to Disney was that the theater was used for the premier of Diseny’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarves film ( as well as and Fantasia years later) the theater held other equally important premiers for almost all of the Hollywood studios of the era, securing it’s place in Hollywoodhistory.
    Still… it does seem like somewhat of an odd choice, all things considered…

    I'll be the first one to spray paint "Walt was here!" on it once it's finished.

    That's um, an odd choice. All the historic theaters around LA and they had to zero in on the same one used at DCA? Weird.

    If it does turn out to be the Carthay then some immature little Universal Parks exec is really trying to pull punches with Disney. Disney should respond by making a Star Wars park with a giant animatronic of Obi Wan (Alec Guinness) Kenobi levitating the Carthay Circle with the power of the force.

    Not necessarily. Copyright on architecture is a little different than other things, and only applies to buildings constructed after 1990. Since the CCT dates to 1926 they unfortunately can copy it to their heart's content.

    Actually. Having seen concept art (long ago) for Universal Plaza, I can assure you it's not Carthay. BUT, it will be very similar.

    Also, can you copyright a building that is no longer standing? Hopfully, Disney sees this as a replica of the original theatre, and not their version in BVS, which was of course completed in 2012. I'm kidding, and I also doubt that it's supposed to be the CCT.
    But if it was, it wouldn't be the first time this happened, as their are a few replica buildings in DHS in WDW that are also replicated in USF. I think they both feature a "Max Factor" building facade and a "Darkroom" camera store. And DHS and USF are physically closer together than DCA and USH, and they were opened only a year apart.

    Universal has had a long-standing feud with Disney since the 1980's when Disney outright stole Universal's plans for a studio-theme park in Florida. (This was well-documented by the L.A. Times). So Universal may just be getting a little bit of revenge.

    I bet this isn't true. Even if it was, it wouldn't really bother me. Wouldn't bother me at all, actually.

    I HIGHLY doubt it's going to be the Carthay Circle theater.

    The support structure is looking very similar to this:
