16th Annual AMPAS Awards of Merit Ceremony – Academy Awards – Grauman’s Chinese Theatre – March 2, 1944

16th Annual AMPAS Awards of Merit Ceremony – Academy Awards – Grauman's Chinese Theatre - March 2, 1944This striking photo of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre was taken on March 2, 1944. It was an auspicious night because it was the first time the Academy awards – technically known as the AMPAS Awards of Merit Ceremony – were held in a theater. Previously they’d been held at the Roosevelt, the Ambassador, or the Biltmore hotels. That night was the 16th annual ceremony and this year (2016) will be the 88th!
