It looks like production is gearing up for the next Quentin Tarantino movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Some [kinda] set images have popped up – well, potential sets anyway – primarily the famous Cinerama Dome on Sunset Boulevard which has had a bit of a makeover. SlashFilm picked up on the images which have started to appear via social media.
The production seems to have taken the famous theater back to the 1960s, the decade in which it opened. The billboards outside are advertising the 1969 disaster film Krakatoa, East of Java. Take a look at this:

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, which will be released in the summer of 2019, 50 years after the year in which it is set, stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, Margot Robbie, Burt Reynolds, Kurt Russell, and Dakota Fanning, amongst others.
“The film takes place during the 1969 Hollywood era at the height of the counterculture explosion,” Tarantino has said, “at the time of the hippie revolution…During the summer, little by little, block by block, we’ll be transforming Los Angeles in the psychedelic Hollywood of 1969.”
More as we get it.
