I realize the world will end anyway on May 21st, but The Hollywood Reporter is, well, reporting that Grauman's Chinese Theater is being sold and we should Expect Some Changes once their deal closes on May 20th.
Bull SHIT, sez me!
There's a Facebook page to save it but everybody knows what that's worth.
I'm not completely clear if they're only getting the Mann Chinese 6 at Hollywood and Highland, or if the rumor that the developers are "considering turning the theater, which has 1,152 seats, into a nightclub," is anything more than that, but still.
Really? The Chinese Theater? It's not IT enough for you?
The Chinese is on all the historic registries, but developers (and Samaha in particular) are notorious for moving forward with their nefarious agendas and hoping no one will notice until it's too late (Yes I Mean You out there bulldozing Johnnie's Broiler).
Let's not let this get swept under the rug, Angelenos!
