3. 洛杉磯Dolby Theatre (前Kodak Theatre)

為甚麼洛杉磯的Dolby Theatre是名建築?因為奧斯卡金像獎頒獎禮,每年都在這裡舉行。

這個劇院以前叫Kodak Theatre(我參加那一年仍然是),但柯達已於2012年破產了,現在由Dolby公司贊助劇院的命名權。

洛杉磯馬拉松的賽道穿越荷里活,Dolby Theatre位於馬拉松的約27公里。

3. Dolby Theatre, Los Angeles

Dolby Theater is rented to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for weeks before Oscar night. Having hosted the awards annually since 2002, the theater is best known for this event.

The theater had been sponsored by the Eastman Kodak. In early 2012, Eastman Kodak filed for bankruptcy protection, and thus ended its naming-rights deal. The venue was renamed the Dolby Theatre, afterward, with the sponsorship from Dolby Laboratories.

LA Marathon’s route goes through Hollywood, Dolby Theatre is located around 27KM point.
