The TCL Chinese Theatre, a.k.a. Grauman’s theatre, located on Hollywood Boulevard. The theatre rises 90-feet high and two gigantic coral-red columns topped by wrought iron masks, hold the bronze roof. Between the columns is a 30-foot high dragon carved from stone and guarding the theatreâ€™s entrance are the two original giant Heaven Dogs brought from China. Protected by its 40-foot high curved walls and copper-topped turrets, the theatre’s legendary forecourt serves as an oasis to the stars of yesterday and today. Ten-foot tall lotus-shaped fountains and intricate artistry flank the footprints of some of Hollywoodâ€™s most elite and welcome its visitors into the magical world of fantasy and whim known as Hollywood.Â Our tour included stories and fun facts from the theatre’s beginnings to today, ranging from Hollywood premieres, to imprint ceremonies celebrities in the Forecourt of the Stars.
