My son and I did the tour while vacationing in the Los Angeles area and were totally amazed. The interior is absolutely breathtaking and a staple in Hollywood History. Our tour guide was very informative and did an excellent job telling us the history of this place. Not to mention just walking around outside seeing all the handprints of the... More

It's quite a cheap thrill just going from one set of handprints to another, reading what the classic stars of old time Hollywood wrote to the owner....Some of the insignias go back to the era of th stars of the first talkies!

I can't believe I'd never been here. So fun to take the VIP tour and learn about the history of this important theater. Also an awesome place to see a movie!

The main portion of my visit occurred outside the building looking at all the foot and handprints in the cement. An amazing number of celebrities over the years have cemented their way into history. The area was pretty crowded but it was totally worth it to walk through the area to see who had left their mark.

Staying across the road from the iconic Chinese Theatre meant that I could fulfil my dream of not only visiting, but also watching a film in the main screen off Hollywood Boulevard! The inside of the theatre is incredible and has such beautiful features that thankfully have been kept preserved to the highest standard . If you get a chance... More

Pay for the tour! This theater is amazingly beautiful inside and hearing about its construction is worth it. You also get tidbits about celebrities and the handprint ceremonies. It's short so make the time for it. Also, look into what movie premieres are being held because us common folk can stand from afar and watch! Gives you the real Hollywood... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
