Hollywood Lost and Found

The Kodak Theatre
Hollywood, California

The centerpiece of the Hollywood & Highland Center is The Kodak Theatre. Opened in November 2001, it is the official permanent home of the annual Academy Awards ceremony. The 3,400-seat, 180,000 square feet theater also offers year-round concerts, Broadway shows and other theatrical events.

Built at a cost of $94 million, Kodak Theatre was designed by the Rockwell Group. The two-story entrance walkway features backlit glass plaques for each Best Picture Oscar winner on limestone portals. There are enough spaces to display each Best Picture winner for many many years.

Notable television and awards events at Kodak Theatre have included the American Idol finals, AFI Lifetime Achievement Awards to Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, and George Lucas, the Latin GRAMMY Awards, the ESPY Awards and the BET Awards.

Guided theatre tours are offered seven days a week (with production and performance schedule exceptions) from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm, departing every 30 minutes. The walking tour offers its visitors many architectural and historical highlights of the theatre.
