    Iconic

    by Africancrab Written May 20, 2013

    This is where all Hollywood theater films produced debuted up until 1960. Opened in 1927, it was the most impressive and grand theater of its kind. Its name was changed to Mann's Chinese Theater but returned to it's original name in 2002.

    If there is something you must see while in Hollywood, it is this theater, it's opulent Asian style facade grabs you as you cross the street or approach from the sidewalks.

    The concrete blocks that hold over two hundred famed stars from as early as the 1920s is one of its main exterior features. Back when it was opened it premiered Cecile B. DeMille's "The King of Kings". Other prominent features is the forecourt of the stars; the hand prints and footprints. Eddie Murphy was my pick, and I found myself laughing thinking back to his movie 'Coming to America'.

    PS: Do not leave for tomorrow what you can do today!

  • Bus Tour of the Stars from Graumans Chinese Theatr

    by KathyWittmann Written Aug 21, 2007

    Hello Star Hunters! You have got to take this tour with Marco - he is from Italy trying to become a famous actor. He is so funny!!! We would come upon joggers and he would say something like "she is pretty, is she famous??? Oh no, not so famous..." and the like all the tour long. Paris Hilton was in jail at the time and when we went by the house he said something like "I hope Tincker Bell will not be too lonely..." LOL - he drives up and down the hillsides like he is in a race car...but it is all fun. Our family is still saying all kinds of Marco-isms. It was a delight! You will see homes in Beverly Hills and Belaire: Mr. Sean Connery, Nick Cage, Snoop Dog, Nancy and Ronald Regan (past home), Steve Martin, Christine Agulara, and many, many others.

    A theater in Chinease design. Check out the star footprints outside. Also if you want to see a TV show live, there are studio people out there giving out free tickets.

    Marilyn Monroe's footprints are in front of Gromann's Theatre. Mel Gibson has tiny feet. So did most of the celebrities, but you know, they're all really short too.
