So the Hollywood sights just have to be done, and you get through the tourists and do it. Having wondered the Walk and checked out the signed paving slabs out the front of the theatre I heard them call out for the start of the next tour and thought 'hey that wasn't mentioned in the guide!' [the dolby/kodak theatre tour... More

It was great to be able to look through all the hand and footprints of some of Cinema's finest actor and actresses. The area in general has a lot of shops and places to eat. The "piano" staircase next to the theater is a neat little thing to try out. However, you have to balance all of the history with... More

This was a great experience. I had been there before, but my boyfriend hadn't been to L.A. so we went for a birthday trip. This historic theater is an amazing place to catch a movie - comfortable and the walls almost talk. Gorgeous detail too.

The famous Chinese Theater is overshadowed perhaps by the courtyard in front which has the famous hand and foot prints of many of Hollywood's past and present stars. You are allowed to take photos and place your hand and foot prints on them. It is really remarkable and worthwhile to visit for film history buffs as most of them have... More

Whether or not you are a movie buff, this is a definite must see attraction while in Hollywood. It is often extremely crowded as people move in every direction constantly looking down at the imprints of enshrined entertainers from yesterday and today. Some highlights for us included seeing the imprint of George Burns' cigar and Will Smith's hand and foot... More

You could spend hours just looking at the bend prints, footprints and messages put there by the stars over the years. Everyone from the Marx Brothers to Roy Rogers and Michael Jackson are there. A 'must-see' on any visit to LA. Try to get there early to avoid the huge crowds.

An experience that is so retro and so terrific. If you are EVER going to see a movie, this is the place. The Imax is super. And the history outside - legendary. Hope they don't change a thing.

This place has become way more crowded than when I last saw it 20 years ago. It is worth dropping by and seeing this and the Walk of Fame, but you will need to fight all the tourists to get to where you want to go. Tourist trappings have exploded to the point of being over the top. Too many... More

Just along from the Walk of Fame and worth a short visit to see the hand and footprints made on the floor outside the Theatre. We did not do the Theatre tour as it was very busy at the time. Its another Iconic place to visit when in Los Angeles.
