    Default Graumanís Chinese Theatre...no more

    well...kinda.

    Worldís Most Famous Movie Theater, Graumanís Chinese In Hollywood, Changes Its Name | /Film

    Friday, TCL, a Chinese TV company, announced they had paid $5 million to have their name placed on the theater. Itís now called the TCL Chinese Theater. The money will be used to upgrade the sound and projection at the theater.

    This is the second name change for the theater, which was bought by Ted Mann in 1973, after which it was renamed Mannís Chinese Theatre. That name stuck until Mannís bankruptcy led to the sale and upgrade of the theater, and restoration of Graumanís name in 2002.

    Bah. They should have kept Sid Grauman's name on it and called it the TCL Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

    Who are we kidding? One day it will be TLC's Honda Accord Chinese Theater or the TLC Theater Powered by Microsoft.
