We had a great time here. There is a lot to see. We went to the largest candy store right next to the footrprints. We didn't even know it was there; but they have a stairway in the building that when you step on a step, it makes the music of a piano. Real cool. In the candy store you... More

This is outside (what used to be called) Grauman's Chinese theatre. It's on Hollywood Boulevard which has the Walk of Fame with the brass/bronze STARS. They have some modern prints too, included the cast of STAR TREK is concrete. Like I described for the Walk of Fame, the boulevard itself is kind of off-putting due to the tacky souvenir shops...

What fun, to think that the celebrity who left their hand print, foot print or/and inscriptions in cement were standing where I was at one time

If your in LA, you need to go here. Check out the star's hand prints and find a favorite. There's dressed up look-a-likes for photos and all the tour services outside. Do it! Be a tourist!

It was good to visit the chinese theatre and see all of the many hand and foot prints outside and down Hollywood boulevard itself but unfortunately the boulevard itself was lacking completely in glitz and glamour ;(

overall great experience - seating, sound, picture. will be my first choice to see films. the only downside is that walking after leaving the movie was difficult, because it took time to adjust to being back in normal experience, and I felt weak and dizzy and disoriented.

If you are in LA, you have to come here and see the sites. All the names and hand prints in the concrete, signed by the stars that made them. It's a must. You can't come to LA and miss it.

We loved seeing the footprints/hand prints and inscriptions in concrete outside the theatre. It gets crowded after lunch and for the rest of the day and making pictures of your favorite stars imprints can be challenging. I was disappointed that the theater allowed a souvenir cart to be parked over the top of a couple of the stars imprints. What... More

Situated on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, there was plenty of room for all of the tourists to mingle and get the photos that we wanted. Security present so felt safe even with the people trying to sell you things. Went here on a Saturday evening so was busy but manageable. A must to complete any visit to Hollywood.

It's a must see when you are in Hollywood however, there are tons of costumed people outside trying to take your money for a picture. Worth it if you've never been before.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
