  1. Cal and Lulu says:

    The Million Dollar Theater (at 307 S. Broadway) built in 1918 by Sid Grauman at the then-astounding cost of one million dollars, it was the first movie palace built in Los Angeles; this elaborate gothic/baroque theater is huge – containing 2,345 seats, and was the site of many old-time premieres. It was later used as a church, and after the church relocated to another theatre (The State), the Million Dollar Theater had been closed and shuttered.

  15. I see only one response/comment so far. Are you posting that the “Identifying” the location & film have already been answered?
    If not, then my guess is the movie is the Artist & the location is the Million Dollar on Broadway in DTLA.
