“Ahhhh the old movie palaces of days gone by.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

A true movie going experience especially entering the famed forecourt and then the beautiful lobby and into the incredible main theater. I've been a number of times and sometimes just sit and think about all the famous people over the years who've left their prints outside and have sat in the theater being entertained. A true Hollywood landmark one must experience!

“Hollywood Icon and Wacky super heros”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

There are few things more fun than playing tourist and seeing a movie here! Oh wait... people watching before your film begins is pretty fun too! And aside from the obvious draws of the Chinese (celebrities foot and hand prints in cement) there are some campy, unexpected benefits of voyaging to Grauman's... the WACKY Superheros that patrol the sidewalk and want you to pay to take a photo with them.... or is it a Jimmy Kimmel stunt being secretly filmed at your expense?

Incredibly busy within the area of the theatres. But fun to put your hands in the spaces of all the famous celebs!

“Great tour inside Grauman's Chinese!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We had a personal tour led by Jasmine on 1/9/13 of Grauman's Chinese Theater. Jasmine is a knowledgeable, personable tour guide and we learned a lot from her during our time inside this beautiful 1920's Hollywood picture palace. Thanks again, Jasmine! You should get a raise!!!

“cool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

This place is swarming with tourists, but I think for good reason. I didn't think it was ridiculously crowded though. Where else can you see the hand and foot impressions in concrete of the rich and famous including Marilyn Monroe, Johnny Depp, Nicholas Cage, Humphrey Bogart, Daniel Radcliffe, even Darth Vader, R2D2 and C3PO. And they're all signed by their owners, even some with messages (Marilyn Monroe for instance has written "gentleman prefer blondes"). It's fun comparing your own hands and feet to your favourite star. The theatre itself is beautiful too and still in use!
