One of my favored movies is Pretty Woman, which, if I'm not mistaken was released about 25 years ago. So I thought I will drive, walk the streets where Richard Here took the Lotus car and ended up in front of his hotel. Wow, the...More

We paid for a VIP tour of the Old Chinese Theatre and the result was not what we were expecting. The Theatre itself is quite dark and most of the tour is spent watching old movie clips, looking at costumes and visiting a ladies toilet!...More

It's the building itself, but of course the floor with the hands and foots from some of the most important Hollywood actors. It's impossible to not compare the size of your hands and foots with the famous ones :-) We went in the beginning of...More

The TCL Chinese Theaters are actually two very different places. One part of it is a dozen or so new theaters in the adjoining mall, on two different levels, which are all quite good,,,though some are quite small. The main old Chinese Theater, is right...More

Not what I expected! It’s just a video clips about history and some costume and prints tour. If I want to see a video clips I’d rather buy a movie ticket! It’s not a VIP tour, it’s just a costumes and short movie showing.

We spent a while here as we enjoyed seeing all the present and old movie star hand/foot prints. There is one from Harold Lloyd who I used to love as a kid so it was quite a nice experience to stand here for a while....More

The Chinese theatre is prettier in the evening when the light shows take place. It’s too crowded at this time of the day though to actually see the hand/foot prints on the floor. We returned at 9 am one morning when it was empty to...More

I was excited about this tour. I mean a Chinese heritage theater in middle of Hollywood. How can you not make it interesting. But I was sorry to say quite disappointing. I LOVED the cement hand prints at the entrance but they were just there....More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night

You can pay $3 for two hours if you get a validation from a store in the Hollywood Highland center. This site does not allow me to post a link. If you google Hollywood Highland parking, you will get more details. Have fun.

Agree with the other reviewers, the best value option is to get to see the inside by seeing a movie. The handprints you can do it yourself (no tour needed).
