DDW Pic 287. Theater of the Stars

Theater of the Stars
This shot was taken in April at the Theater of the Stars in Hollywood Studios, which is home to the Beauty and the Beast show. In the early days of Disney MGM Studios, they had a "Star of the Day." These celebrities would leave their handprints in cement, similar to what is done in front of the actual Chinese Theater in Hollywood. When the Theater of the Stars re-opened on the new Sunset Boulevard on June 12th, 1994 (exactly 18 years ago today), the cement square containing Howie's handprints was moved to the entrance area. There are several other stars that can be seen in this form near the theater. There are also a whole bunch of handprints that can be seen in front of the Chinese Theater at the end of Hollywood Boulevard.
