Time to Think of the Dolby Theatre
A Major Destination on a
Private Tour in Hollywood
While the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members are earnestly watching nominated films right now it will soon be time when our private Los Angeles tour guests will be noticing the activity buzzing in and around the Dolby Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood. Home of the Academy Awards since the 2001 Oscars the modern facility allows for outstanding coverage of the live television event and its extravagant performances. Equally important is the fact that the celebration of films and filmmakers belongs in Hollywood where the industry and the recognition began. Born across the street at the Roosevelt Hotel, then at Grauman’s Chinese Theater next door, the Dolby Theatre is the perfect place for this much anticipated global event. Ray Dolby, the engineer behind the Dolby sound system for whom the theater is named, was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (ceremony begins at 21:30).
