6925 Hollywood Boulevard
Hollywood has always been home to cinema and the entertainment industry. Starting when film took off in the late 1920s and early 1930s, this area has become synonymous with success on the silver screen. Nestled on the historic Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Chinese Theatre has been accommodating movie-going audiences since 1927.
In addition to premiering legendary films like George Lucas' Star Wars, the movie house may look a little familiar. This is where the red carpet has rolled out for the Academy Awards three times. Spend time where all the who's-who in show business have come together to celebrate motion pictures. The theater was named a historic-cultural landmark in 1968, and today tourists come from all over to visit this famed attraction.
Check out the spectacular architecture, which rises 90 feet high with two massive red columns that hold the bronze roof. The copper-topped turrets and tall curved walls contribute to the building's signature style and distinctive look.
Take your seat for a showing in a spot frequented by your favorite celebrities. The theater itself makes this a very memorable experience, whether you're at an exclusive premiere or simply catching a movie. With renovations in 2013, the TCL Chinese Theatre became the only Hollywood theatre with an IMAX auditorium. High-tech and cutting-edge, the gigantic curved screen delivers a cinematic experience like none other.
Outside this iconic spot, spend time strolling along the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It's a rite of passage to place your hands over the handprints of America's most beloved movie stars. The theater hosts the Forecourt to the Stars, inducting the chosen few who will leave their mark on Hollywood forever.
