American history may be riddled with wars and revolutions, but it is also important to recognize the importance of the movie industry which created a unique American identity. Hollywood created the face of America even before the wars and it still continues to be the ambassador of the American culture.
With that in mind, Warner Bros. are a household name all over the world, and it should come to us as a surprise if they choose to buy the naming rights of a movie theater that is related to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.
Apparently, Warner Bros. have paid to the tune of $5 million to the museum so that the new movie hall that would celebrate the history of American cinema would have the WB title instead of the Smithsonian. Of course, the new theater would replace the existing 270-seat Carmichael Theater and turn it into a posh space of 3D technology and great interiors. Warner Bros. classics like “Citizen Kane,” “Casablanca,” “The Jazz Singer,” “The Lord of the Rings,” and “The Wizard of Oz” would be some of the movies to be screened along with movies from other production houses too.
