Chiefly in:   Grumman's Chinese Theatre

Classification: English – questionable

From Jim Landau on ADS-L, 12 December 2004: “A favorite of mine is “Grumman’s Chinese Theater”, which presumably hosted
the premiete of the movie “Top Gun”.”

Not an eggcorn, strictly speaking, but still a reshaping in which an unfamiliar item is replaced by a more familiar one (for someone who knows more about the aerospace industry than about Hollywood).
