I guess you can take a movie in here according to the advertisements. But the main attraction appears to be just to be seen and photographed here. Lots of Chinese tourists and of course they want to have their picture taken with you. I obliged. I wonder what magazine cover I'll end up on in Beijing. Drive by and save... More

For a long time, I had wanted to see a movie in the historic Chinese Theater. When I decided to buy tickets online at the web site, I found several movies and chose one. Next, I chose "Standard" and not "IMAX 3D" because I don't prefer 3D unless there's a very special reason why 3D might be superior. I missed... More

If you're walking along Hollywood Boulevard, take 5-10 minutes and check out the Chinese Theatre. Although we didn't go inside, we did enjoy looking at the stars' signatures, hand- and footprints in the cement. We even saw them setting up for the movie premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy outside, complete with red carpet!

right beside the star handprints and all the stuff going on around it, this was an iconic place to visit. Pretty awestruck.

Visiting the Chinese Theater was a very good experience. We had a wonderful guide who was not only knowledgeable but entertaining. We learned the history of this beautiful theater and briefly experienced how it has been transformed to meet today's theater goers. You hear some "inside stories of the stars who have graced this building and saw artifacts and costumes... More

The recently renovated IMAX screen in the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood is incredible and a must see! I believe it is the worlds largest Imax screen and I say coolest, the room itself is amazing and a work of art! If you have time go and see a film here and make sure its in the main Imax theatre...you will... More

Not sure a trip would be complete without a trip to the Chinese theater! They hand/footprints are so much fun to look at and the walk of stars is a must do. Park in the parking garage attached to the mall and stop by one of the shops to buy something to get parking validated. You'll get two hours for... More

My review is based off the outside and its a cool building with lots of tourists. When we where there they were setting up for a movie premier for Tammy and it was so cool. The outside is mum and full of people.

We were down in the L.A. area visiting “Universal Studio’s” and decided to stop at this famous place where all the stars have “put their foot in.” The day we were here, it was crowded with none stop busloads of foreign tourists “yakking away and stepping on the concrete impressions you wanted to take.” After a while, I guess they...

I was not excited about taking this tour, but wow was I wrong. learned so much about the place and the IMAX screen. Little expensive for what you get, but need to do if you are in LA.
