All About Grauman’s Chinese Theatre will take you on an insider’s tour – backstage, under stage, up to Grauman’s office and private boxes, down the stars’ stairway and upstairs at Hollywood and Highland to the new Grauman’s Ballroom bar and restaurant, the renovated Chinese 6 Theatres and its Grauman’s Gallery, featuring the theatre’s storied history.
Theatre historian and THS Board member, Ed Kelsey, will present a PowerPoint history of the Chinese – the planning, construction and operation of the theatre, its elaborate prologues, the Forecourt and its iconic imprint ceremonies, and explain the theatre’s evolution since its grand opening on May 18, 1927.
