Smile! It’s your Kodak moment! I have had great fun over the past 18 months taking photos of our tour guests as they pose on Nominee Staircase, at the base of the Kodak Theater. Now the Eastman Kodak corporation is in deep financial trouble, and have asked a bankruptcy judge for their name to be removed from the Theatre, thereby releasing them of their $74million contract for naming rights.
I understand from news reports that a new name may be in place next week, just in time to greet the attendees of the 84th Annual Academy Awards. Whatever the name of the venue, I will continue to capture smiles and memories for my tour guests as I share Hollywood and movie history with them. We’ll walk up the same beautiful staircase to the theater, remembering the multitudes of wonderful movies that have been filmed over the years on Eastman Kodak film.
