TCL/Grauman's Chinese Theatre Renovation Pictures

Check out the new TCL/Grauman's Chinese Theatre! Here you can see how the screen is now set back a bit from the arch that it use to hang from.

Side curtains are now open so you can see the beautiful Xavier Cougat mural in silver on the brick walls, as well as, the red lanterns (that look more yellow in these shots unfortunately). The original floor was where the closest pillar to the screen ends.

If you've been in The Chinese Theatre before you remember how dark and dull  this light fixture had become. Not only is it beautifully restored but also lit with changing center colored lights. Gorgeous!


     Here are some shots of the lobby. The latern in the entry way. Dorothy's dress from the Wizard Of Oz on display for the grand open of the new IMAX Chinese Theatre run of The Wizard Of Oz in IMAX and 3D.
