“Not bad but ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

The fist thing that you notice when you get there is the number of people standing outside the theatre trying to get you to buy tickets for movie stars homes.
If you can ignore them then you notice the hand prints and footprints of the stars that are in the cement floor.
It's good fun trying to find your favourite and testing to see if your hands or feet fit in theirs.
Some all time great there.
We then decided to do the theatre tour which is $13 each for 30mins, our guide was great and very helpful and knowledge was second to none.
I did feel sorry for her though as there was only 4 of us on the tour, though good for us as we had plenty of time to ask questions and see more.
All in all worth a visit but be prepared to be hassled with ticket sellers and people in costume trying to sell you a photo.

“handprints of your favorite stars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

the most interesting thing of the theatre is at its outside; the handprints and footprints of all time great hollywood stars are on the cement floor...its amazing;you can take photos with the handprints of great MJ or Sofia Loren...exciting; any hollywood city tour will include that ; or if you want to spend time of your own go there by Metro red line and get down at hollywood/highland station and can go there by walking; if you are a hollywood film fan..this is a must -see place in hollywood

“A Must-See When in Hollywood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

You really don't want to visit the Hollywood area without going by Grauman's Chinese Theater. It's almost like something you simply have to do. It's fun to look for the hand and/or foot prints of your favorite stars, but if you want to avoid the crowds and salespeople, then get there really early. There are plenty of restaurants nearby so you won't go hungry or thirsty after burning those calories walking around the place.

“Red carpet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

On this day, we were treated to the Hollywood movie premiere of "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone". So not only did we see Jim Carrey's hand prints and footprints in the cement earlier that afternoon but we saw him live coming out of his limo later in the evening. We got lucky to see this happen because we didn't know that the premiere was happening that same day! Warning: There were many costume-clad people at the attraction to enhance a tourist's experience but if you want to take a picture with them remember that they also take tips. Overall, we had a great time visiting the walk of fame and taking pictures of the stars on the sidewalk we were familiar with. We had the "red carpet" treatment so to speak!

“Most magical cinema ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

This was the most magical cinema I have ever visited. Its really awesome and has an enchanting interior decor. I saw The Hobbit here with HFR 3D and it was amazing. The screen was really huge. Totally amazing and magical.
