    Plaque at Great Movie Ride is wrong!



    Nice, huh?

    But the Chinese Theater opened in 1927! Take a look...

    Any idea how such a mistake was made, and never fixed? I can't imagine it would be so hard to put up a new plaque.

    I think what happened is quite clear. The theater was built in 1928 and then a time machine took it back to 1927.

    Frankly, I'm not very surprised that this has gone unfixed. A sign in Tomorrowland still shows the Skyway, Metropolis Scenes (sic) Center, and Intergalactic Convention Center.

    Maybe they thought nobody would notice?

    Really? Where is that sign, I'd love to see it.

    I am a big fan of the actual Chinese Theater, so the date stood out when I noticed it two days ago.

    I just bought a new camera so I was taking dozens of pictures of the Chinese Theater facade and noting some of the differences.

    One of the most notable differences is the beautifully restored doors in Hollywood:

    Compared to the Disney version:

    Hey look:


    It appears that the Vine Street Brown Derby actually opened in 1929.

    Maybe they just wanted to pretend all of Hollywood started in 1928 (as did Mickey Mouse.)

    Maybe they got carried away with the whole "it was all started with a mouse" idea.

    It must be the difference in time zones.

    We don't have any plaques here with any erroneous Florida trivia.

    Maybe its payback for the mistake in Jurassic Park when he says that Disneyland opened in 1956 instead of 1955.
