This is the MILLION DOLLAR THEATER.

Built by Sid Grauman in 1917.

She is the first of the fine old movie palacesof down town Los Angeles.

 

This music is THE RITE OF SPRING: Part 1- Adoration of the Earth.

Igor Stravinsky composed this ballet in 1913.

The premiere caused infamous sensation due to the visceral dancing and score.

 

I heard this music in my head whilst I photographed the theater exterior.

I wondered if the architect had been to Stravinsky's ballet.

Remarkable to watch your web presence blossom in the past year. Where's your spectacular abandoned hotel series? Oh there it is, the Ambassador one down toward the bottom. What else is in here... oh look...

I remember sitting in the theater beside a young girl who sometimes wept at the sad parts but definitely always stayed to read all the credits. More photos please! More documentary work, pretty please, please!

Make believe one small black squirrel creeps up to place an acorn at your toe, then vanishes back into the mythical trees. You were right the first time all along.

P.S. I'm cooking actual chicken soup tonight. Will raise you a cup. Rice or stars?

I would not miss it!! I love being a part of it. Its a Bob Dylan Holiday to honor his birthday each year of this Great songwriter!!
