We used our Go Card for this tour. Check in at the box office then wait at the theater doors for the guide to let you in. This is a more of a history and gossip tour. You can take pictures with a Oscar and...More

Nothing special about the facade of his theatre. The stars to get to it gives it some elegance. We did nothing inside (the tour is expensive just to look around for a couple of minutes).

One of the most exciting location in Hollywood even without Hollywood movie stars. Impressive building with exciting winners names along the stairway.

If you watch the oscars and such award ceremonies this will be an interesting place. Our tour guide knew his stuff so was interesting but 30mins you’re back to what next....

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

3,400 Give or take, if they have the orchestra barred off it would be less. So for instanceright now when Americas Got Talent is on, they have less seatings because the have that area cleared for the judge panel etc..

We stayed at the Holiday in just around the block. Much quieter than staying on Hollywood Blvd. An easy walk to the Dolby theater.
