Welcome to the home of the Academy Awards
(and the American Idol grand finale) — the Kodak Theater.
It’s a huge place (big enough for 3,400 people, and features the deepest stage in the US at 120 feet wide and 75 feet deep). It comes with a huge price tag, too. It cost nearly $95 million to build, and another $75 million for Kodak to earn the rights to give it its name.
Well the cost isn’t surprising, considering the people who go there expect the star treatment because they are… stars. The VIP seats are even equipped with gizmos that let order drinks.
