The historic Grauman's Chinese Theatre is going to be sold...again. According to the Los Angeles Times, Viacom Inc. will be selling it producers Don Kushner (TRON: Legacy) and Elie Samaha (Battlefield Earth). Sounds like a winning team?
This deal will also include the Mann's 6 which sits in the Hollywood and Highland complex/mall/shopping/eating place. There are no plans to do any major work on the buildings, except to update the concession area. And for those that have ever seen a movie at the Chinese Theatre, you know it's needed that for a long time.
To millions the Chinese Theatre is just a place to see foot and hand prints while wondering what else is up the street. To many others, the Chinese Theatre is still a great place to see a movie. It's one of the last movie palaces left. If you haven't seen a movie there, do it. Then walk down Hollywood Blvd. and catch another flick at the Egyptian.
What say you?
