Replica of Hollywood's famed Grauman's Chinese Theatre welcomes visitors to the Hollywood U.S.A. Pavilion. Information booth and ticket stand sports the pavilion's marquee.

Welcome to Hollywood U.S.A. Step inside and visit the world of...

Lights! Camera! Action!

A view of the back side of Hollywood U.S.A. as seen from the Transportation Area and Grand Central Parkway. Behind the large wall is the setting for West Side Story. Perhaps someone as Maria sang "Tonight" from the balcony on the outdoor replica street setting for West Side Story.

The main street of Dodge City is quiet in this afternoon view of the replica Gunsmoke TV series set. Is that Miss Kitty and Newly checking out his six-shooter outside the Long Branch Saloon?


There's trouble brewing at the Long Branch as some city slicker tourist Fairgoers are about to have a brawl.
