GRAUMANN'S CHINESE THEATRE
Grauman's Chinese Theatre, now renamed TCL Chinese Theatre, is rarely mentioned in lists of top Los Angeles architectural sites, but Raymond M. Kennedy's 1927 movie palace is arguable the most famous and definitely the most visited architectural landmark in the city. Working for the design firm of Meyer and Holler, Kennedy was responsible for 99% of the theatre's sketches and design details. While he never gained the prominence of some of LA's better-known architects, Kennedy's architectural influence continued in a different direction when he became a professor of architectural design at the University of Southern California, teaching architects who went on to win notable awards. His own architectural projects were as diverse as designing movie sets and working as a consultant for the design of the Pentagon in Washington DC.
