Veterans bring Hollywood sizzle to Legion Post

Hosted by

Hollywood Boulevard is famous for its historic movie theaters. There’s the Chinese Theatre, The Egyptian, and El Capitan.

Now these will be joined by another theater, just up the street on Highland Avenue, in a building that’s just as fabulous. It was built in the 1920s, and then it was just as much of a draw for celebrities.

We’re talking about American Legion Post 43. It primarily serves military veterans and their families -- but soon it will open its doors to movie-lovers.
