It's one of the oldest movie theaters located on Hollywood Boulevard at the walk of fame. You can't but notice the beautiful Chinese style architecture at the entrance door. Needless to say that the movie theaters inside are all renovated and equipped with the finest...More

This was one stop on a LAX tour on our Princess Cruise voyage; it's been on my bucket list for many years. We didn't have time to go inside, so can't comment. It's not glamorous, but it is iconic and an important piece of Hollywood...More

When you visit Hollywood, you have to visit this iconic theatre. In front of the theatre, there are multiple hand and foot prints from movie stars of the past and present. Many movie premieres are held here.

One of the highlight in Hollywood. All visitors come here to make pictures and admire the building which is great from outside.

A local took us—after enduring the walk of fame we got to TCL and were able to walk around reading the different concrete blocks to see handprints and signatures and footprints of famous actors/singers. That was cool, just be aware that the masses of people...More

Do the Vip tour. They show a short film, and you can walk around inside the theater. The tour guide will tell you all about the names and hand prints out front, and if you are nice they will give you a map, showing where...More

Obviously a tourist draw but a lot smaller than I expected, Able to see the Hollywood sign from the shopping mall next door.

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

Christine from New York posted the hours but this theatre chain hosts many special events from Academy events, (there is more than one academy), to industry screenings to film festivals, so worth a phone call before you go.
