  • Regularly Broadcasting a Television Show from the Hyperion Theatre

    I wonder if anyone inside the company has considered the possibility of using the Hyperion Theatre to tape or broadcast live something like a late-night talk show.

    In order to comply with F.C.C. rules, the tickets would have to be available to studio audiences free of charge unless, of course, the program is only shown on cable and satellite. But, I am ready for ABC to put Jimmy Kimmel out of his misery and go in a different direction.

    The Hyperion Theatre does seem sizable enough and sophisticated enough to host multiple kinds of productions concurrently. So, a television show could potentially give the new park greater cachet while also adding some real functionality to the studio area.

    Well, there's probably no problem with being free of charge... They'd just do it like they did back when they did the Mickey Mouse Club: pull park guests to sit in on the taping. Nickelodeon has always done the same thing with all of their shows, too.

      Wow, that's kind of a cool idea. It is in Hollywood after all, why not?
      A signature should go here.

        Chauffeuring guests to a taping Hollywood or Burbank is a relatively easy thing, and convenient since most appearances are part of a promotional schedule such as meetings, interviews, premieres, concerts, etc. Add in the transportation of the technical and production crews to budgets. Anaheim wouldn't seem like a daily viable option considering these concerns.

          I wonder if they have ever concidered turning The Hyperion into a movie theater. Kinda like the Main St Theater, but instead of the cartoon shorts, have the classic movies playing.

            No No No Bring back Blast or Let Anne Hamburger do another Broadway show.

              I think the big problem for the audiances would be the theater itself. Being Disney they would not want the folks (unless it was for theme park guests) going into the theme parks (as was pointed out, must be free). If it wasn't DCA guests they'd need that external enterance to the theater (which they skimped on in 2001)...but more importantly for either set of viewers (external or DCA) they'd need restrooms.

                You know what... Spend the money... the city of anaheim would have a great place for limited engagements and such.... imagine a broadway tour taking it over for a week... they might make more money offering it to outside people during certain periods of the year....

                  I agree with the other posters who said that they could pull guests from the park. It's a great way to guarantee an audience.

                  Somewhat OT, but I've always thought that they made a mistake by building the Hyperion and not putting in restrooms and a concession stand. For a theater that has 45 minute shows, they could make money and not anger people that actually have to leave the theater to use the facilities.

                    on the special features for the Alladin DVD they filmed in the Theater so it is possible to do things there.

                      I like the idea of having a tv show... but I don't like using Hyperion... I would prefer them build a sound stage in the old Millionare Building... Use that...

                      You put it in Hyperion, guests will fall off the stage...

                            I think the Hyperion might be too big for that type of thing.
                            But I'm all for live tapings down there!

                            And I can tell you 'bout today
                            And how I picked you up and everything changed
                            It was pain
                            Sunny days and rain
                            I knew you'd feel the same things...

                              Well, I agree on several things here. First, I agree on the Broadway idea. The building has the potential to be the pre-spot before they head to Broadway. Things like the Lion King (as an example) would fit there for re-tooling and refining. A tad OT but an example, there is this resturant near me that was started by a guy who manages this Mariachi grou that kinda world-famous, as well as a female Mariachi. The resturant is where he practices the new members and allows the band an easy place to rehearse, so similar concept should apply here.

                              Back on topic, my mother and I always thought it would be good to film 'Whose Line is it Anyway?" in the Millionare building. It would be perfect.
