When we are in Hollywood, we like to go to see a movie at the Chinese Theater. The quality of seeing a movie there is a stellar experience. The seats are comfortable, the screen is great, and its so fun to watch a movie there. One can just imagine being invited to a premier where some Hollywood star sat in... More

My second time here was even better than my first! Since I visited last they upgraded the theater to an IMAX which makes it the 3rd largest by capacity in the states! Best Audio and most Comfortable seats I have ever enjoyed in a theater! MAKE IT A POINT TO WATCH A MOVIE HERE!!!!

My family visited the Chinese Theatre entrance during our Hollywood vacation trip, and it was a blast seeing all the actor's names and hand prints in front of the theatre. It's like stepping through a time machine back into the past to see names like John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Lou Costello, etc. Really, Really cool. I was also surprised at... More

We loved our visit here and would definitely recommend it! It is a must see for a stop in Hollywood and we loved looking at all the handprints on the path outside the theatre. We got a 'buy one get one free' ticket for the tour from the Elephant card (see Hollywood tourist website) promotion. What brilliant value. The tickets... More

The TCL Chinese Theater FKA the Mann's Chinese and originally Grauman's Chinese Theater is as iconic as the Hollywood Sign -- this makes it a must see tourist attraction but more importantly it's the best place to watch a movie that I've ever seen. The theater was updated last year to include the biggest IMAX screen in the country so... More

We made this one of our recent stops while on Hollywood Blvd. The tour was about 40 minutes. The guide took us inside this, now IMAX, theatre. The ceiling was was a beautiful step back in time - long before I was born. On display we saw costumes worn by Marilyn Monroe, Vivian Leigh, Judy Garlend and other stars of... More

This is a fun place to go. You can walk around and see all the foot prints in concrete along with their corresponding hand prints. Really cool to see.

I went down to the TCL Chinese Theatre the day after Robin Williams passed away to pay my respects at his star. It was complete madness around the walk of fame star, but I managed to get a photo. However, I did find that the handprints and footprints were a lot more individual in terms of the time you can... More

Really cool place to see a movie. Outside are the cement hand prints of the celebrities. There are movie costumes and props in the lobby, even the Ten Commandments and Dorothy's dress. The IMAX theater has great seats and sound.The tickets will run you about $18-$20 per person depending on if you buy them online. You can park in the... More
