    Got to find you, Mel Gibson

    Even though, i never met real of Mel Gibson but i don't mind to only see how big his hands are. Ha....

    Take a walk down Hollywood Blvd and you'll pass by famous sights such as Mann's Chinese Theatre, where legions of glitterati have left their prints on the sidewalk out the front.

    The Vista Theatre

    by Erin74 Written Dec 30, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many old and wonderful movie theatres in Los Angeles, many of them dating from the silent era and decorated with lavish, themed embelishments. The Vista is a great example of an old theatre and a fun place to see a movie while you're in town.

    The screen here isn't large, so maybe it's not a great place to see a big, highly visual epic (like Lord of the Rings or Braveheart)... but that's about the only downside here. The prices can't be beat ($8 adult tickets) and the seats are very comfortable (some have about 6 feet of leg room in front!). Also, the decor here is wonderful! It's a sort of Egyptian theme, with colorful sconces and busts of Egyptian figures placed all around the room. The ceiling is very colorful and interesting, as well.

    Out front, there is a mini-walk of fame, featuring handprints from a few stars and a number of interesting local personalities.

    Movie characters

    by meteorologist1 Written Sep 1, 2003

    On the streets of Hollywood you can see characters from movies. Great to pose for a photograph with them, and it is fun for your children. You will find a lot of characters such as Zorro on the streets.

    The Cheers bar

    For a girl who watched episode upon episode of Cheers when I was a kid, seeing the actual "Boston" bar smack in the middle of Hollywood was a surreal, but strangely exhilarating, experience. Well worth the entrance fee for that alone!
    You also get some Star Trek, costumes, etc.
    Apparently, since I last went, they've added some of The X-files set which I'd kill to see!

    Hollywood is quite possibly the world's tackiest tourist trap-but hey, LA thrives on tacky! Certainly you couldn't go to LA without making a stop there, could you?
    The film studios and movie stars are long gone, leaving in their wake hordes of tourists. That in and of itself makes it a fun place to visit-the people there are so much fun to watch! Beyond that, there is the walk of fame and a few other noteworthy sites.

    by biawak Updated Aug 25, 2002

    When I go to L.A., I try to go to the Improv club in Hollywood on a Thursday to see Drew Carey and his gang on stage. They have valet parking and the food there is not so bad either. Go early and find a good seat. Hold on to your tummies as comedian after comedian try to get you to die laughing...
    Many people go to Hollywood expecting to see celebrities. This is one of the easiest places to actually see famous comedians WORKING. Call ahead to find out who's performing. Price of admission, food, drinks etc. is medium.

    Ford Fairlane did it in the movie, climbed the Capitol Tower's building. Well, that's in the movie, but honestly, I didn't had a single thought doing it when I was standing there. I promise!
