Interior Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, Hollywood Boulevard, 1927

Interior Grauman's Chinese Theatre, Hollywood Boulevard, 1927Photos of the exterior of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre aren’t too hard to find, but interior shots are far more rare. This one is the foyer inside Grauman’s, taken in 1927—the year it opened. The attention to detail is impressive—that pair of wall hangings either side of the doorway, the floor tiling, that intricate ceiling. They even had two mannequins dressed in traditional Chinese garb standing in the corner—or they actual live ushers?
