The Walt Disney Studio Grand Opening April 10, 1940
I have several images of the new Burbank Studio that I plan to show over the next several weeks. The first image is one that I particularly like as it is of a rarely photographed building, the movie theater at the studio. This is the grand opening date of April 10, 1940. On the bill is the RKO Pathe News Reel, MGM's Mad Maestro animated film from 1939, RKO Information Please, The Blue Bird featuring Shirley Temple and released in January of 1940, and Elephant Boy starring Sabu released in 1937. Quite a bill. The poster is nice with Stromboli the showman holding the title.
