Kodak Theatre

The Kodak Theatre has hosted the Academy Awards since 2001, and I kind of assumed that the ceremony would be staying there for the foreseeable future. I remember back when the Awards moved to the Kodak, with much ado made about how the theater was designed specifically to host the show and that now it would have a permanent home. That may not be the case, however. According to a report from THR, the Academy has informed the theatre that they will not automatically renew their release to present the show there after 2013. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the Academy is looking to move, just that they’re keeping their options open. A lease not being automatically renewed wouldn’t even really be news if the Academy hadn’t already attracted a very viable second option. Apparently AEG and their Nokia Theater are keen on being the new home of the Oscars, and they seem to have some benefits that the Kodak can’t match.
