I must have been there about 4 years earlier. I heard a "Grauman's" tie-in you might like. Seems that, years later after having been released from a mental institution Harry Thaw, who'd murdered famous architect Stanford White at the old Madison Square Garden in NYC due to a rivalry over showgirl Evelyn Nesbit, was visiting LA. Upon seeing Grauman's Egyptian theater, he exclaimed: "My God, I shot the wrong architect!"
great story.I shd've mentiond this is Grauman's Chinese. the Egyptian down the street is wonderful inside but lacks curb appeal.BTW Evelyn lived her final years in Hollywood. I had a poem abt her in my last book but it didn't make the final edit.
