TCL Chinese Theatre Tours

Stand in the footprints of your favorite silver-screen legends in the courtyard of this grand movie palace, formerly known as Grauman's Chinese Theatre. The exotic pagoda theater - complete with temple bells and stone Heaven Dogs from China - has shown movies since 1927. In fact, it's still a studio favorite for star-studded premieres, captivating crowds of all ages.

It's somewhat of a tourist rite of passage to compare your hands and feet with the famous prints set in cement at the entrance court. There are some 160 celebrity squares to discover including R2D2's wheels, Jimmy Durante's nose, Betty Grable's legs, or Whoopi Goldberg's braids. Rumor has it that the tradition was started when silent film star Norma Talmadge accidentally stepped in wet cement the night of the theater's premier of Cecil B. DeMille's King of Kings.

In 2013, the theatre teamed up with TCL "The Creative Life", a Chinese electronics manufacturer, to bring the theatre into the 21st century while retaining the 85 year legacy and place in Hollywood history. In addition to a 10-year naming rights contract, this allows TCL to put their stamp on the theatre through upgrades to seats, equipment and more to enhance the movie-goers experience.

Practical Info

On Hollywood Boulevard and N. Orange Drive, Grauman's Chinese Theatre is part of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. You're close to the triumphal arch of Hollywood & Highland and many of Hollywood's famous grand theaters, including the Egyptian and El Capitan.
