This is a great golden area Hollywood theatre currently home to the American Cinematech program. The program is a repertory film society and they show themed classic and modern films with lots of great guests. I wish I had time to go more often the films are always well preserved and presented flawlessly. The theatre itself is beautifully preserved.

Went to see a movie with my son and we happened onto a mini film festival. It was great fun. The building is beautiful. Old Hollywood luxury. Sound is good, which is important. One caveat: I parked in a lot near the theater and didn't have the required cash. I used an ATM in the lot (I know, dumb idea)... More

This majestic edifice is living art. It is one of the great symbols of the Golden Age of the Silver Screen which is a work of absolute architectural beauty. I have enjoyed many premiers here and even those that were duds did not ruin the great experience of just visiting this palatial landmark. You can't really visit Hollywood and miss... More

We went to this theater during the TCM Film Festival and had a great time! The theater itself is spectacular and a good place to watch a movie. My only complaint was that the seats on the main floor are rather narrow, if you're heavy they'll be tight. However the seats in the balcony are of a more standard size... More

This is a jewel of a building - one of the mist beautiful cinema ceilings I have ever seen. The programming is also very good with some excellent screenings, Q and A's etc. But be warned the staff or volunteers are not well organised and the booking systems for screenings impossible if you do not have a US bank account....

I really loved the theatre as it was covered as a part of the walking tour. This theatre has got some of the really nice artwork.

It was hyped as one of the best parties for NYE in LA - not so much. The party "started" at 9 but even though we already had tickets, we waited in line for almost an hour - in the cold (yeah, it was actually cold in LA). The main party was in the courtyard without enough space heaters, again,... More

Transport yourself back to 1922, Hollywood California. Hollywood is in its hey day and King Tut's tomb has just been discovered in Egypt. Egyptian fever has hit the world. With a seating capacity of 2,071 seats and a special appendage to the stage for opening prologues and performances, "Robin Hood" is shown at Hollywood's first-ever movie premiere at the Grand...

We were so disappointed when we went to the Egyptian theater. I had read how the film "Forever Hollywood" at the Egyptian Theater was a must see. When we got there, it was not open. Apparently, it is only open a couple of days per week and for special events. We, obviously, did not know this. I had looked at... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
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 partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
