One of the place to visit when you are in LA. It’s in the Hollywood Blvd. so you won’t miss this when you are walking through the walk of fame. You’ll see the hand prints of actresses, actors and singers. Just pop in when you...More

It was full of hundreds of tourists the day I visited, and people dressed up as Star Wars figures and everything else you can imagine asking for money to take a picture with them. The footprints up and down Hollywood Boulevard were lots of fun

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night

Agree with the other reviewers, the best value option is to get to see the inside by seeing a movie. The handprints you can do it yourself (no tour needed).

Tours start in the morning. The best place to go for specifics is their website. They have tour options as well as times. You can book everything in advance, guaranteed a spot. Have fun!

Christine from New York posted the hours but this theatre chain hosts many special events from Academy events, (there is more than one academy), to industry screenings to film festivals, so worth a phone call before you go.
