Inside The Million Dollar Theater's Hidden Spaces

New, 4 comments

Filmmaker Haeyong Moon has posted a great series of videos featuring interviews with Hillsman Wright, the executive director of the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation, as they walk through downtown's Million Dollar Theater* Wright explains many of the hidden artworks throughout the Sid Grauman-built 1918 theater, prior to its recent $1 million restoration. The tour through the neglected theater teaches us it's not just the movies that can have a happy ending - the images are a potent reminder of how extensive the rehabilitation has been in the past few years.
