Since 2002, the Academy Awards have been held annually at this venue. Constructed in 2001 as the Kodak Theatre, the facility briefly changed its name to the Hollywood and Highland Center Theatre after Kodak filed for bankruptcy. The theatre was renamed Dolby Theatre in 2012 with a 20-year deal with Dolby Laboratories. You can learn all about the other corporations that support Hollywood by watching the 2 hours of commercials during the award ceremony.

The theater has one of the largest stages in the world at 13 ft (34 m) wide and 60 ft (18 m) deep. It was designed by David Rockwell, a NY-based architect and stage designer. Notably, his group also did the interior work in the jetBlue terminal at JFK International Airport.
