Historic Sight Overview

Celebrating more than 90 years of movie going, the grand opening of the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood was on May 18, 1927, the most spectacular theatre opening in motion picture history. Built by theatre entrepreneur Sid Grauman with investments from United Artists and MGM Studios, the theatre was spectacular in its Hollywood-Chinese/Deco design. At this time, the cement ceremony of placing the hand and footprints of famous movie stars began. Since then the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre has become one of the many tourist attractions in Los Angeles. In 2013, the owners teamed up with TCL, China’s biggest electronics manufacturers, and renamed the TCL-Chinese Theatre. With this partnership, the theatre was completely renovated into an IMAX Theatre with the new laser projection system.
