A handful of Hollywood buildings will be bathed in blue light starting tonight and it's not for the Dodgers. Today actually marks the beginning of National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. The disease, identified as blue on awareness ribbons, is the most common cancer in males the U.S. Approximately, there are 180,000 diagnoses each year and it kills some 40,000 annually.

The Capitol Records Building, Paramount Studio’s Melrose Gate and Water Tower, the historic Roosevelt Hotel and the Ramada of West Hollywood will all be seen in blue for a week.
