“Most magical cinema ever”
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.

“Great History”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

First let me say that we first went to this area on a Summer afternoon and the area was so crowded and there was going to be a premiere that night so the red carpet was covering the majority of the handprints. We ended up going back the next morning at about 8 a.m. and it was fantastic. Hardly any people, and we could see all the handprints and footprints at our leisure. Really fun when it wasn't teeming with people, and a thrill if your favorite movie star's prints are there!

“We only went to check out the hand and foot prints.”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

We didn't go inside the theater - we only went to see the hand and foot prints.

It's interesting but you'll only spend about an hour here. I couldn't find Helen Mirren's even though hers are brand new, but we did find quite a few other 'newer celebrities' and enough to keep the kids happy. Most of them are from older celebrities from decades ago.

It's free as it's outside and on Hollywood Boulevard, but you have to walk around the large numbers of costumed people - it's a little weird - but hey that's Hollywood right!

“prints in history”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

you don't have to spend all day here, just go for a few minutes, find the handprints of your favorite hollywood stars and enjoy the moment. it can get pretty swamped by bus filled group sized tourist, locals in all kinds of get ups and others selling you tours to see the homes of the stars, so be prepared but it's still fun to see and take pics!
