TCL Chinese Theatre
TCL Chinese Theatre (Formerly Grauman’s Chinese Theatre)(323) 461-3331 | website
Formerly Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, one of the most popular spots in Hollywood, TCL Chinese Theatre is best known for the hand and footprints in its forecourt. No matter how much tourists or locals claim that they’re not star-struck, within a few minutes of arriving at this historic landmark they’re placing hands and feet in the cement prints or taking photos.
The Chinese Theatre is one of the most beautifully preserved of the movie palaces from Hollywood’s golden era. The theatre opened on May 18, 1927, with the premiere of Cecil B. DeMille’s “The King of Kings” and was the most spectacular theatre opening in motion picture history. Thousands of people lined Hollywood Boulevard and a riot broke out as fans tried to catch a glimpse of the glamorous movie stars and other celebrities arriving for the opening. Since this first ceremony in 1927, when Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks placed hands and feet in wet cement, over 200 celebrity prints have accumulated in the Chinese Theatre forecourt. Theatre creator Sid Grauman (the “Sid” to whom you see many inscriptions written) stayed on as the Managing Director of TCL Chinese Theatre until he died in 1950. Tours of the theatre are offered seven days a week and it’s just as easy and fun to buy a ticket and see the film currently playing. Today, The Chinese Theatre is sill the preferred theatre in Hollywood for studio premieres and fans still flock to these events to see the celebrities arrive and walk up the red carpet.
