Good little tour

We took the tour - pretty informative for a short 20minute tour. Many movie premieres are still shown there - a lot of history from Judy Garland to Julie Andrews to Marylin Monroe... read more

This was a top destination on my list of must-see's in LA. I only wish I had more time to visit the theatre inside. The footprints, handprints and signatures of many old and new celebrities fill the small square in front of the theatre. Be prepared to contend with a lot of tourists, movie character impersonators and tour guides outside.

We didn't go in but this is the place to go to see the celebrity hand/foot prints and signatures in the pavement outside. Hollywood is tatty but if you walk along the 'Walk of Fame' make sure you include a stop here along the route for a bit of history.

If you come here and just look at the handprints and superheroes, you're missing a trick. Get a guided tour of the cinema - one of the nicest half hours you'll spend in LA, in the company of particularly warm and friendly guides. It's an amazing auditorium, and there's an enormous amount of history here too!

We only saw a few prints here on our most recent visit as there was a movie premier scheduled for the evening. The barricades were up and the red carpet covered the famous forecourt. Still, every time we visit it's fun. Maybe the excitement simply overflows from people who are big fans of stage and screen. I can't remember the... More

We chose to take the half hour tour and we were majorly impressed with our guide's passion for the historic theater and Hollywood history. It is a well written tour that nevertheless feels improvised. The anecdotes were fascinating. In 30 minutes she packed in about 2 hours worth of material but still gave us every opportunity to ask questions. When... More

Outside the TCL Chinese Theatres there are all those signings from different actors and celebrities, which were very interesting to see. You could feel the wings of history during this visit.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
