Grauman's Chinese Theatre 3.5 rating


The Grauman's Chinese Theatre, now known as the TCL Chinese Theatre, is the most famous movie theatre in the world. Inaugurated in 1927, it hosted the Academy Awards from 1944 to 1946 and is today an IMAX theatre that hosts many movie premieres. It has a forecourt featuring concrete blocks with almost 200 signatures, footprints, handprints, and (in some cases) ''otherprints'' of several movie stars. The 90-foot high theatre resembles a Chinese pagoda, with the entrance flanked by 2 red columns surmounted by wrought iron dragon masks. In front of the columns are 2 Ming Dynasty guardian lions, while above is the bronze tiered roof. Between the columns is a 30-foot high stone relief of a dragon. The plush Orient-inspired interiors are equipped with state-of-the-art technology for the best viewing experience of the latest flicks.
