The Dome on Google maps

Thanks to Anders Olsson who discovered this amazing trip

Google Street View now lets you "walk around" virtually inside the Cinerama Dome. Locate the Cinerama Dome on Google Maps. It's at 6360 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, California. Drop the pegman on the street outside and adjust your position so that you're right outside the Cinerama Dome, facing its entrance. (The location will actually be shown as 6369 Sunset Boulevard.) When in the right spot, you'll see three arrows in the street, one of which is a double arrow pointing at the Dome's entrance. Click on the double arrow (or use the up arrow key on your keyboard) and you're on your way in.

While inside, you may notice the two display cabinets at each side of the lobby filled with Cinerama artefacts and posters for the 60th Anniversary.

...and from Randy Gitsch, The Cinerama Restoration Crew:

Go to Google. Click on Maps. Enter "Cinerama Dome, Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, California". Zoom in on the closest map view directly over the red "A" finder spot. When you're as close as you can go, drag the little Street View "pegman" icon to a position on Sunset directly across from the front doors of the Cinerama Dome and directly opposite the red "A" finder spot. Rotate your Street View until you are facing the front doors of the Cinerama Dome squarely.
Notice the double arrow pointing toward those front doors. Click on the arrows will approach the doors...and they will open. Click once are now inside the Cinerama Dome's lobby. Click once again and purchase your popcorn, or that box of Skittles to your left.

Click once on the back arrow. Now, by clicking on the left or right arrow's, you may approach and enter the theater auditorium from either side ramp. One click up either side ramp, be sure to turn around and notice the wall display cases filled with original Cinerama ad art, cameras, lenses, three-panel clapsticks, etc.. Once you're in the theater you can remain in the orchestra level or go up to the mezzanine.

You can reach most seats. Find your seat, turn and view the screen from your vantage point. You can not get closer than the 6th row from the screen. Colors in different areas of theater are somewhat tweaky due apparently to the Google capture. Nonetheless...Amazing!
