On this day in 1947, the Million Dollar Theatre was being advertised as the “New Home of the Big Name Bands,” with Erskine Hawkins & His Orchestra topping the bill. Special guest star was the Oscar-winning actress-singer Hattie McDaniel. The ads made no mention of a movie, but something probably was screened to fill the gaps between stage performances. Possibly an insignficant “B” programmer or a batch of short subjects.

I remember my parents taking us as children to see a mexican performer after that it was sad to see the area overcome by illegal people, drug dealers and winos. We were never taken back. I hope that it has changed and that we could walk down our streets w/out fearing what I just mentioned.

Hollywood, it’s tough to get a picture of that domed thing, isn’t it? I had to settle for the reflection.

Above that is another false ceiling that dates back to the original theater, with the real ceiling above that.

Nice. Throwing someone’s momentary confusion back in their face with a lame imitation of their post. You stay classy, hdtv267!

the 35th anniversary special shadowcast screening of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” with Barry Bostwick as special guest will be at this theater. rhps35.com for more information.

on behalf of the event committee, and as a Conservancy member for about ten years, I’m happy to say it is a pleasure to bring our event to Broadway, and to this gem. :)

Let’s hope you’re right. There’s a lot of effort underway to revitalize the downtown area. If that works, then it’s very likely that the Million Dollar will still be open in 2019.

Depends, Justin. Are you a optimist on the economy, or a pessimist?

i rented blade runner from netflix on bluray, and I can see the theater during the night scenes. Wonder if that theater will still be open by 2019?

What problems are you having with YouTube? If it’s stuttering and stopping, you can let it load all the way before playing and that should take care of it. I haven’t heard of it giving anyone else trouble…

Cool keep it going. The you tube stuff does not work too well.

It was great seeing The Wild Bunch and the stars from the film but the show itself was a disorganized mess causing much confusion and frustration among those waiting in line. Even those paying top dollar and in the front of the line did not get in until “Album in Montage” was half over. There were a multitude of problems and I will be wary of any Jules Verne Society program in the future.
