Hollywood, California

The Cinerama Dome Theatre stood by itself on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles since the early 1960s, but recently it was surrounded by the Arclight Cinema multiplex which is run by Pacific Theatres. The theatre opened with "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World" in the second variation of Cinerama, a 70mm anamorphic system. Ironically, the original 3-panel Cinerama was never seen at the theatre until the autumn of 2002.
