Not much to see but if you have a spare hour to kill its worth a few photos, they have there own version of the Hollywood stars but hands put into wet cement, can be very crowded as it's on the main road

Unlike the walk of fame which is obtainable with a donation, this is the place where you actually have to be invited and after seeing the footprints, a tour of the theater is an absolute must - extremely knowledgeable guides with one of a kind memorabilia (tablets from the Ten Commandments), hearing about the history of one of the greatest...

We enjoyed our time at the Chinese Theatre placing our feet in the footprints of stars. The cement were personalized by the stars and that added a little character and made each block unique. No matter what your age you will find names you know from Shirley Temple, Betty White, Roy Rogers, Robin Williams, etc. . . . . You... More

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 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
