Grauman's Chinese Theatre

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by anna195 on April 18, 2007

Grauman's Chinese Theatre was built in 1927 by a partnership led by Sid Grauman. There have been countless movie premieres held here, and perhaps the most famous events held here are the imprints of the hands and feet of Hollywood's biggest stars. I would recommend the guided tour. You get a tour guide as well as headphones. You will get more detailed facts and information about the theater and the stars who have left their signatures and hand/foot prints there over the years. It is priced fairly reasonably, and will be well worth it. 

Next to Grauman's Chinese Theatre is the Kodak Theatre where the Academy Awards are held. There are also live concerts held here throughout the year. So try and check out the theatre schedule to see if any concerts will be going on while you are there.

On top of the Chinese Theatre there are several eateries, which are all very delicious and also reasonably priced. I especially recommend the Mongolian Grill. Also from atop the Chinese Theatre you can view Hollywood Blvd. from above and see it from a different view. This was a very fun place to go. A definite must-see if you are in L.A. for even just a day!
