Hollywood CA: Chinese Theater Celebrates 90 Years PDF Print E-mail

On May 18, 1927, Sid Grauman opened his Asian-designed movie theater. It was the same year the first talking picture, "The Jazz Singer" ended the silent film era.

Since then many famous premieres and other events have taken place at the historic spot. A favorite of tourists, the front sidewalk, the Forecourt of the Stars, has the permanent foot and hand prints of Jean Harlow, Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Clark Gable and many others.

When your roaming takes you to Hollywood Boulevard, be sure to make Grauman’s one of your stops to smile and selfie.  www.tclchinesetheatres.com
