The HOLLYWOOD & HIGHLAND CENTER Kodak Theatre, the site for Oscar presentations between 2002 and 2012. Billy Crystal referred to the venue as the "Bankruptcy Theatre", at the 2012 presentations. With the folding of the camera company, the Kodak name had been removed in February of that year. In May, a new sponsor was announced and the auditorium bequeathed a new name. On June 11, 2012, it officially became the Dolby Theatre. Photo from Wikepedia / "DirectorG"
