SOUND: My husband and I can normally hear and understand 100% of the movie dialogs in other movie theaters. But when we saw the movie Interstellar at the Chinese Theater IMAX, the sound was so bad (adjusted too loud and with too much bass, plus a low-frequency rumble-vibration a lot of the time in the movie soundtrack) that both of...

Such a weird cinema to be in! It was pretty authentic, lots of memorabillia on show in the... lobby? Not sure what it's called! Cool place, not a bad price for the tickets either! Had a good night here!

Did the quick tour around inside the theatre, nice to hear a little bit about its history, saw Judy Garland's dress from the Wizard of Oz! That's the best I can say, the footprints and handprints some cracked and broken, surrounded by the homeless, beggars and people dressed up in not very good costumes bothering you constantly for photos which...

Hollywood Blvd and the Chinese Theatre were tacky, waste of time, and nothing I had hoped for. Don't waste your time going there.

My main tip is that I went on a weekday in October and it wasn't too crowded and was able to get pictures fairly easy. Other than that I would agree with most of the reviewers are saying about how dirty the area is. It is a place I wanted to see and I did. I did not take any... More

Bring you camera, this place has tons of celeb's hand and footprints immortalized on the ground. It's fun to look at, and just overall a nice area to check out. You shouldn't miss it.

Lovely building with the hand and foot prints outside. Reasonable priced tour but not very long ~ but definitely worth a visit.

I really enjoyed all the hand prints and foot prints in the cement, but some of the cement slots were a bit dirty and looked like they hadn't been cleaned in a while. I think that the area needs a facelift, because I really enjoyed the significance of the theater but was disappointed that the area did not reflect its... More

The hand/footprints and the messages in front of the theater were fun to look at but the tour is not worth the time investment. You simply see a previous of a movie on the large screen ... then look at some of the old costumes from various actors / actresses mixed with a little history of the theater itself. It... More
