It was once named after the American gold-digger's son Sidney Grauman, who at the time made a lot of money through bets and speculation, thereby financing the construction of the theater and other buildings.

The TCL Chinese Theater in Los Angeles was built very elaborately in the shape of a Chinese pagoda.
