 DOTD Marquee 1978

I don’t remember where I found the photo, unfortunately, but it’s the creepiest one I’ve got.

The only thing I can think of is that he wants to show off his DotD t-shirt under the DotD marquee.

The Hollywood Theatre was a classic. You can see a better shot of the beautiful marquee here. It closed in 1992, “doomed” by “the seedy, dilapidated state of Hollywood Boulevard.”
