We saw a film on the IMAX screen in the original oscars theatre and enjoyed it, but it was seeing the famous outfits in the lobby (Monroe's gold dress, Judy Garland's Wizard of Oz outfit) and the hand and footprints outside that made the night. Bette Davis had really small feet!

A must see as its world famous, no glamour at all, the glamour comes with the stars, expected something more glamorous. IThe place was crowded. Anyway it was worthwhile looking around & going to souvenir shops.

We (a couple) had a chance to visit the TCL Chinese Theatres, but only the exterior. The building itself is very impressive and huge. But the reason why everyone is going there is to touch and step on their favourite stars' footsteps! However, we really struggled to find the stars we were looking for. All the footsteps and signatures are... More

Firstly, let me say this review is only for the forecourt. I did not do the tour of the inside of the theatre. It is interesting to see the hand / foot prints outside the theatre, and it is something you should seek out when in Hollywood I was just disappointed with the whole setup. It was very difficult to... More

Almost everybody's heard of the Chinese theater with the hand- and footprints outside, and when visiting Los Angeles it is a must. For all us ladies it can be a bit of a let down to realize that stars like Humphrey Bogart and Jack Lemmon had very small hands and feet. Not much bigger than yours, or as in my... More

I didnt want to pay the 12 dollars to go inside but I enjoyed looking the place and around it. Just to imagine all the famous people that went there is interesting. The cientology building is a block from there. Very curious place!

I was spending a week in LA and I went there to take my mother who was visiting LA for the first time. The interesting there is the foot and hand prints from stars made in the floor just in front of the Chinese theatre. Famous movie stars and singers, left their prints. It's a landmark of LA and I...

This was a great attraction in a busy place but the Hollywood star tour ppl can be a bit abusive when you dont want to go on their bus with one using profanities against us when we refused his repeated advances. But besides them and guys trying to sell their rap cds who dont let you walk past this is... More

We enjoyed it. tickets were cheap and popcorn was yummy! If you have the time, watch a movie where they... More

We went to see this location for our anniversary. It was our first time ever seeing it. Though we didn't go on the tour, we enjoyed seeing all the hand and shoe prints outside. It was exciting. The walk of fame was a little disappointing because we couldn't find who we were looking for and it seems to go forever.... More
