It really takes a few minutes to see... We could not get in because they were finishing preparation for the Oscars at the Dolby Theater next door. (It was interesting to watch!)

We decided to take the tour of the inside of the theater because they were offering tours for half the regular price ($6.75). An interesting tour in which we were able to see some vintage costumes from movies past, tour the women's powder room (Marilyn Monroe among others once and currently still use), and take a peek at the IMAX...

Went there to catch "Hercules" in July 2014 The theater was very modern, screen and sound were impeccable and we had a great time! If you're in Hollywood, it's a must seeing a movie there, it has so much history that it makes the whole experience that much better and exciting!

I've watched a movie there and it was just awesome! The tickets are not expensive and I've watched a movie in the biggest imax screen I've ever seen. Besides that the service is good and right in front of it there's a lot of peoples taking pictures of the walk of fame and the signatures on the theatre floor.

One of the things you have to do is visit Gruman's Chinese Theatre. Stars having been leaving their footprints & hand prints in the concrete paving for 60 years. Even our teenage kids had a bit of nostalgia stepping into the shoes or hands of the stars. You can do a tour inside the theatre, but we were just happy... More

Did the whole Hollywood thing in a morning. The handprints and footprints in front of the theatre were pretty cool. There were some protesters in front of the theatre but they weren't too bothersome. One thing I wish someone had told me is that this whole area is kinda smelly. Like urine and garbage but didn't stay long and didn't... More

These theatre hand and footprints go back a ways and that is something to see. Marilyn Monroe is probably the biggest draw. To get to hers, if you are standing front and center outside of the theatre on the Walk of Fame, turn roughly 40 degrees to your left and start walking. You will eventually hit hers and if not...

Wandering around from one block to another was terrific. From old time Hollywood stars to modern actors and actresses, it was a sight to see.

Went on the tour of the theatre to have some air condition as it was so hot . And for 10 dollars it was so worth it and Levi gave some wonderful facts - as someone who loves films it was nice to see behind the scenes - the ladies restrooms are a must to see

At $10 it's half the price of the Dolby tour. You can take photographs and you get to see some historical stage costumes/props. The theatre itself is stunning and you get to walk across stage and take in the atmosphere. Tour guide was enthusiastic and keen to talk passionately about the place. Would recommend
