We’re just a few weeks away from the premiere of Michael Dougherty’s kaiju epic Godzilla: King Of The Monsters, the long awaited sequel to Legendary Entertainment’s 2014 version of Godzilla. So of course, there needs to be some tribute to the titular “King Of The Monsters” in the building anticipation for such a release and for those in Hollywood, California they’ve unleashed a titanic promotional piece.
Earlier, Michael Dougherty tweeted a picture of the unique Arclight Hollywood Cinerama Dome. With said picture including Godzilla himself bursting through the dome like a baby gator out of an egg!

This stunt promotion is not too uncommon for the theater, having done similar events in the past but is perhaps the most epic and breathtaking thus far. The Cinerama Dome itself having a considerable history in Hollywood. Per the Arclight website here:
“Built (in only 16 weeks!) in 1963, Pacific Theatres’ Cinerama Dome opened with the “single-strip Cinerama” production of “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.” The Dome, the first and only theater of its kind in the world, has been host to over 50 years of premieres and blockbusters.
Still under the ownership of Pacific Theatres, the Dome was carefully refurbished and refreshed, reopening as part of ArcLight Hollywood in March 2002. The signature marquee and portico on Sunset Boulevard and the 316 hexagons in the geodesic dome were restored to their original dramatic presence. The Dome still seats more than 800 guests per showing and has maintained the historic loge seating – a favorite of moviegoers over the years.”
Godzilla himself bursting from such a landmark is sure to turn some heads and pique their interest in the upcoming destruction to be wrought in Godzilla: King Of The Monsters! The movie is set for release on May 31st, 2019.
