Once you make it past the throngs of people trying to take pictures with you/sell you stuff and the works the courtyard of the Chinese Theater is fascinating. Old and new stars are memorialized in front of this Hollywood icon. Take a look around and see if your favorite celebrity has had the privilege to have their hands and feet... More

Visited as part of a tour through Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Stopped here for a few moments. Hollywood walk of fame with the stars are located outside the theatre. There is also a mall next to the theatre. Very busy I front of the theatre with tourists.

Visiting the former Grauman Chinese Theater was one of the highlights of my recent LA tour. It was amazing to see the footprints and signatures of some of the Hollywood Greats, and there is even more to see inside.

This is what we really came to see, as it gives you more of a sense that these Hollywood great had been here. A special committee decides whose hand and footprints get to go on show in the outside forecourt. It gets crowded so you need to be patient and wait your turn, but it is definitely a MUST DO

We spent an entire afternoon at the TCL Chinese theatre, re-living the Hollywood history and enjoyed every moment of it. TCL theatre is right at the Hollywood walk of fame. We parked our car at highland shopping centre, which offered a discount since we patronised shops at the premises. The theatre appears little dated but it is huge and I... More

This is popular with tourist and is always very crowded. It has all the stars names on the floor and a Hollywood tradition to see. Did a tour inside which you pay for not that exciting would bother pay for it. You can walk in for free.

Went there today and loved the way they build that place. The hand and footprints of various famous actors are all around. A must do while in LA.

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.
