"Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story"

Looking into the auditorium at the Palace Theatre, 630 S. Broadway, with John C. Reilly onstage in "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story" (Columbia, 2007).  The film is in color but for this sequence director Jake Kasdan went for a 60s grainy TV news look.

The Shrine Auditorium is used for a glitzy concert sequence with star John C. Reilly as well as other performers including Jewel and Lyle Lovett.
