Hollywood Boulevard: Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and Hollywood Walk of Fame

Hollywood Blvd.

Pay tribute to cinematic history in the beating heart of Hollywood’s entertainment district.

In a town bursting with movie screens, The Chinese Theater may be L.A.’s finest. A sought-after venue for hosting movie premieres, the theater features one of the largest movie screens in North America. It opened in 1927 and was declared a historic and cultural landmark in 1968. It’s been in a more or less constant state of renovation and rehabilitation since then, in order to preserve, update and enhance its world-renowned grandeur and décor. Visitors can soak up the majesty by seeing a movie on one of its six screens (the IMAX screen is housed in one of the world’s largest IMAX auditoriums) or enjoying a VIP tour. Be sure to take in the theater’s concrete forefront, which boasts impressions from nearly 200 Hollywood celebrities, dating back to the 1920s. But if it’s embedded homages to the stars you’re after, travel a few blocks east on Hollywood Boulevard to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where you’ll find more than 2,600 terrazzo-and-brass stars spanning 18 city blocks, honoring famous actors, musicians, directors, producers and beloved fictional characters.

Nearby

  • Located at the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue, the Hollywood Museum features four floors and more than 10,000 pieces of Hollywood memorabilia.
  • Steps away from the Chinese Theatre and the Walk of Fame, Hollywood & Highland is where you’ll find the Dolby Theatre (host to the Academy Awards), as well as world-class shopping and dining, red-carpet movie premieres and acclaimed live theater.
  • Visit the famous wax museum at Madame Tussaud’s Hollywood, where you can finally take that selfie with Taylor Swift you’ve been longing for.
