Interesting to compare hand and foot sizes with the stars and interesting to see it once in my life but I certainly won't need to return. This area is at crush capacity with "performers" trying to make a buck out of photos with tourists and overall a fairly seedy neighbourhood. I won't rush back but pleased to say I've seen... More

You've heard lots about the Chinese Theatre so that's why you came, and you're going to love it. From the footprints & handprints in concrete to the towering faux Chinese facade, it's all part of Hollywood glamor & you're a part of it while standing there. It's always busy, but worth the wait. ...

Without realising, we stumbled across Will Smith's movie premiere! Absolutely amazing, we queued up opposite the theatre for about 2 hours and was not disappointed. So with a little more research we found another premiere a few days later with Ryan Gosling, Steve Carrel and Brad Pitt! Definitely something to look into if you're in the area!

If you are a film or history buff then this is worth your time. Stand in the footsteps of the stars and surprise yourself with how tiny some of those footprints actually are. Think the stars of the past had way more glamour than today's celebs.

Tourist central. Can be enjoyable but it is non stop tourists so dont plan on any real Angelenos to be there.

Crowded at most times its still good to look at who has their names in the concrete and try your own feet and hands for size

With all the hype & red carpet events you see on television, I was expecting to be "wowed" by this (formerly known as Mann's Chinese Theater). The façade was less than interesting, the street was lined with "performing artists" begging for $$, and further down the road was a very seedy-looking neighborhood which made us turn around and walk right...

TCL (formerly Grauman's) is now almost buried in modern development but the stars' hand and footprints and personal messages are still there. Worth a trip for anyone who has a spot in their heart for film and tv.

I was told that the Chinese Theatre is for tourists and I might as well go to any IMAX. I am not a great cinema fan but my partner is. We both loved the look of the Chinese theatre, and yes, there may be some touristic props like costumes from movies but rather that than a big cartoon board you... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
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.
