Grauman's Million Dollar Theater to offer tours soon

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES

Eyewitness News got a sneak peek of the historic downtown Los Angeles landmark on Saturday.

The goal of the upcoming tours is to help revitalize the Broadway Theater District.

"The tour will basically take our guests from the basement to the projection booth and all points in between. We think it's a really good way to build awareness of these theaters and to help save them and bring them back to life," said Hillsman Wright with the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation.

Restoration plans are in the works for the Million Dollar Theater. Organizers say the outcome of the upcoming tours will help determine long-touted intentions of turning the 12 other theatres on Broadway into a live entertainment district.

Wright said the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation plans to open the theater on March 23.
