I guess when you are in Hollywood the Dolby theatre is a must. Was a rainy day so didn’t enjoy it to the full extend. Worth the visit.

This is modern theatre hall which holds many Oscars presentations. It has a very stage and audience hall. When we were there for the Guided Tour, we saw the Setup for America Got Talent. Impressive!

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 press your nose against the glass but you will see very little, just a dimly lit lobby. You need to book the tour to see anything useful :-)

I ate most of my meals at Mel's diner, a couple of blocks away. Great food & they had Groupons available at the time I was there so it was also a great deal!
