Grauman’s Chinese Theatre under construction, circa 1940s

Grauman's Chinese Theatre under construction, 1927I thought this was a shot of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre under construction, but that’s a 1940 Dodge truck parked out front. So perhaps this is when the exterior was being repaired – or possibly when the lighting was being “blacked out” during the war years.

    Here’s a nice close shot from 1934 of the entrance to the theater with the box office prominently installed in the forecourt. The featured movie was “The White Parade” with Loretta Young and John Boles.

    Gee, I’d love to have been there!
