TCL Chinese Theatre Tours

star-4

TCL Chinese Theatre
Peek into old Hollywood on a visit to the historic TCL Chinese Theatre. This quintessential California landmark, featured in movies since 1927, is still a favorite location for star-studded red-carpet premieres. A recent upgrade to the theater’s seats and IMAX 3D equipment enhances the experience while keeping the theater’s original charm.
 
The Basics
The TCL Chinese Theatre—formerly and still commonly known as Grauman’s Chinese Theatre—is home to more than 200 footprints and handprints left behind from some of Hollywood’s most famous movie stars, such as Marilyn Monroe and John Wayne. Catch one of the latest flicks inside this still-functioning movie theater, or get an insider’s look behind the impressive golden doors with a VIP tour. 
 
Most Hollywood and Los Angeles city tours stop at this cultural landmark, and a visit is usually grouped with a stop at the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a drive by the Hollywood sign. Alternatively, opt for a walking tour, hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus, or even an open-top bus tour that also drives by the homes of top celebrities.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The TCL Chinese Theatre is a must-visit for movie buffs.
  • Bring your camera to take a picture with your favorite celebrities’ hand and footprints.
  • The courtyard is easily accessible independently or with a guided tour.
  • The theater is accessible to wheelchair users.
 
How to Get There
Located on Hollywood Boulevard and N. Orange Drive, the TCL Chinese Theatre is part of Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. It’s an easy walk from the triumphal arch of Hollywood and Highland, the Dolby Theatre, and the Egyptian Theatre. Use the Metro Red Line if arriving via public transportation, or park in one of the nearby paid garages.
 
When to Get There
The theater’s exterior and the Walk of Fame are visitable day and night. Check the Chinese Theatre’s website for a calendar of special events and movie premieres that could make your visit extra memorable. Los Angeles is known for its pleasant year-round weather, so there’s rarely a bad time to go. 
 
Other Nearby Attractions
A trip to the Chinese Theatre isn’t complete without a visit to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Stroll down the sparkly black sidewalk of Hollywood Boulevard, looking at the 2,600 brass stars stretching 18 city blocks. The nearby Dolby Theatre, home of the Oscars, is another popular tourist attraction exemplifying the glitz and glam of Hollywood.
