Shortly before the current Hollywood Candy opened, a restaurant the founder owned, Hollywood Diner, had sadly closed its doors. This closure had left a “Hollywood” diner neon sign so it started there. As for the inside of the theater, the reason that this particular spot was chosen was that the floor is significantly sloped which provided a great spot for the stadium seating. The old school wooden seats were reclaimed from the former Sokol Chapel when renovations were completed. Finally, the carpet. Sporting “Douglas Theatre Company”, the carpet was salvaged from the former Cinema Center theatre which was located on 83rd and Center St.
