This is The Million Dollar Theater, in Los Angeles, CA.
Built by Sid Grauman in 1917, this was his first magnificent movie palace.
He would later create Grauman's Egyptian, and Grauman's Chinese Theaters.
This beautiful old structure recalls the mystical experience of the moviegoer,
when film making was a completely new art form.
The music is by Igor Stravinsky: "The Rite of Spring. Part 1: Adoration of the Earth".
Its 1913 Paris premiere disturbed the audience; with its primitive,visceral rhythms and dance.
I could hear this music in my head as I was photographing the Million Dollar Theater. Enjoy.
