It’s the first thing you see when you ride the escalator out of the Hollywood and Vine Metro station. It’s the first photo-op for people arriving for a show. Our marquee has stood watch over Hollywood Boulevard for over 85 years. It has been featured in the opening of Jimmy Kimmel Live and various other television shows and movies. Did you know that there is also a replica of it at Universal Studios in Orlando? From the original to the digital update in 2013 here is a look at our beautiful marquee and all of its accomplishments.
