If you were to just go to the Chinese theatre and have your photo taken with the hundreds of other tourists and the wacky, rude people dressed in costumes out the front you would be only getting half the visit. I did the 30min guide tour, which was about 13US. It takes you inside and you get a run down... More

It was very cool checking our the hand and foot prints. Especially loved the older ones and seeing how small their feet were, well their shoes anyway! We stayed nearby so visited a couple of times. The experience is much nicer when it isn't completely overrun with too many people, which does seem to happen at diff times of the... More

Just drive by, take your pictures and keep going. Seriously, the crowds are crazy and parking is a pain. Worth seeing, but not worth stopping.

Now, seeing hand and foot prints of some of the pioneer actors/actresses at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater was far more exciting than seeing stars on the sidewalk with celeb names on Hollywood Boulevard. Surprised that it was still an active movie theater and thought it was just a museum. Definitely worth a stop.

This chain operates the Grauman's Chinese theater and we went to see a 3d IMAX there. it was a great experience as the charm of the old theater has been maintained.

Was good to see but didn't see many celebrity handprints/footprints that excited me. Harassed by rappers handing out their demo CDs and then asking for money. Also crazy people in costumes who want your money if you get a photo with them.

I didn't visit inside but the outside is smaller than expected but with interesting concrete souvenirs. It crowded with beggars in costumes.

The kids enjoyed putting their hands in the famous impressions left by their favorite celebrities. This landmark is something all visitors to Hollywood must see.

This is a "must do" for every trip trip to Hollywood. The stars hand prints, footprints, and signatures are interesting, but makes one wonder where the rest are. While they span from the 1930's to present day (Harry Potter stars are the most current), there have been thousands that are not there. The actual theater tour is a separate attraction... More
