“The Main Road”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Graumans Chinese is always fun. They have put on some really good movies there. You can be out front and there you will see many people walking around dressed up like a star or character. In the cement you will find feet or hand prints of some old stars and its just a fun place to be.

Loved visiting here, especially loved the handprints of all the famous Hollywood movie stars. So humbling to see their words and their prints from so long ago. This is a must see!

“Stars hand & footprints”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

You can't go to Hollywood without going here. It's amazing how many stars have themselves immortalized here. From Shirley Temple to Johnny Depp, it's fantastic. They take your picture when you go in and you can purchase it.

“Fun to see but overpriced for what you get”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

It is free to go see where all the stars have put their hands in concrete. If you want to tour the theatre there is a $13.00 charge. I thought for the length of the tour and the information given the tour was pricey. I think it would have been fair for a $5-7 fee. If I had to redo it I would have just gone to see a movie . I would have had access to all of the same things but would have also gotten to see a movie out of the deal. After all of the other tours I did that week this one did not measure up.

I visited on Wednesday, October 10th.

“a must see.”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

I could not believe that this place is that old. And they have state of the art system, so they can still hold 52 premieres a year. We did the VIP tour which was worth it (and cheap), you will learn a lot about the theatre. All the hand and foot impressions of the stars were just unbelievable.
