Who do you think your hands might be bigger than? Marilyn Monroe? The stars of Harry Potter? There’s only one way to find out!
For over 75 years Graumans Chinese Theatre (now known as TCL Theatre) has been one of the most iconic locations in Hollywood. It’s where we see the glitz and glamor of premieres, and where the stars come out for the Academy Awards.
The forecourt of the theatre holds the imprints of hands and feet of some of Hollywoods biggest stars, both of the past and of the present day, and is what most people know about the theatre.
It’s a fun and interesting way to feel close to your movie favorites (We don’t know if Mickey Mouse is there yet but we’ll ask!) and compare how their hand sized differs to yours!
There is also more to the theatre than the imprints to see – it is still a working movie theater! You can spend the afternoon grabbing the latest film (which might have had its premier right where you stand!) as well as a large IMAX screen for those really impressive blockbusters.
It was once stated “To visit Los Angeles and not visit the Chinese Theatre is like visiting China and not visiting the Great Wall”. And its true! It’s a Hollywood icon.
