Located along Hollywood blvd., the Grauman’s Chinese Theater is one of the most visited sites in Hollywood. The theater was built in the 1920’s following the success of its predecessor The Egyptian Theater which later on fell into despair. However, unlike the Egyptian theater, The Chinese theater survived through the movie industry slump during the 1980’s -90’s.
Aside from the architecture that we really enjoyed, one more reason why people just like us go there is for the foot and hand prints marked on the theater’s front yardWe enjoyed looking at the prints and comparing our hands and foot sizes to different Hollywood icons as we try to fit them on their marks.
We marveled at the beautiful building and different foot and hand prints on the floor for a while until it was almost dark. There are also some street performers dressed out in costumes of your favorite Hollywood movie character whom you could take a picture with for a tip, I even saw one dressed as Freddie Krugger… ohhh scarry!
