Kodak Theatre at Hollywood Boulevard

The Kodak Theatre, a live theatre in the Hollywood and Highland retail, dining, and entertainment complex on Hollywood Boulevard and North Highland Avenue in Los Angeles, was opened on November 9, 2001 with a seating capacity for 3,400 people. The theatre has been the home of the annual Academy Awards (Oscars) since March 2002 and the first permanent home for the Oscars. The stage is one of the largest in the United States, measuring 113 feet (34 m) wide by 60 feet (18 m) deep. The theatre was sponsored by the Eastman Kodak company that paid $75 million to have its name associated with the building owned by the CIM Group.
