Onto the sidewalk of Hollywood Boulevard. Looking at the stars on the Walk of Fame, and staring at the fingerprints and footprints of celebs, I realized: I love Hollywood. I came with my wife here for our anniversary getaway (the kids stayed with their grandma back in Richmond.) My wife was all excited and jumping and we took her picture with MJ's star. Came for the premiere of Harry Potter: Deathly Hallows Part 2 (don't ask.....) I loved it, but was kinda overrated but still overall a nice experience, though the parking did suck, but still nonetheless was a nice experience. The screen in the theater was HUGE, and I mean HUGE. It was probably the size of the front of my house! In other terms: big. All I can ...

This is the real thing folks, in all its glory and misery. It's slightly seedy and yet fascinating. All the big names, ghosts of the past you saw on TV when you were a kid are enshrined here forever. Harold lloyd, Joan  Crawford, Marx Brothers, Shirley Temple, Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, Henry Fonda, Rita Hayworth, John Wayne, Cary Grant, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Jack Nicholson, The whole Star Trek cast, Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, Will Smith.............you name it. Plus they also show movies here. One of the few big screens left. Sure the areas seedy with bums and urine smelling streets, cops and beggars but if you come to L.A. and like movi...

$36.00 for a night at the movies?  $25.50 for  2 tix and $10.50 for a kids pack and a bottle of water.  Well, I guess I can finally say I've watched a movie at Grauman's Chinese Theatre.  Not only did I get to see a movie, I got to see this must see Hollywood landmark as well.  What a deal! The architecture and details on the walls were pre...

A stroll down Hollywood Boulevard is the perfect way to " Be A Tourist Day" on 08/30/2007 with Ranz and Gina.  At one end of this road to the other lies the famous Walk of Fame.  But intriguing enough in the middle of it all lies the Grauman's Chinese Theatre.    For years I have never visited the theatre up close.    It was always a "drive by" attraction for my family, friends, and I.   So I made it a point to visit this world famous theater and finally touch ground. Also known as Southern California's most well known landmarks, it truly steeped in Hollywood lore.    Tourists everywhere.  Characters lurking on the sidelines hoping to making a dollar.     Tour guides screaming on their megaphones trying to g...

This is the theater I love the most, the place I want to take friends when they come in from out of town.  THe Chinese is historic and grand and all that, but it's the only theater that actually makes me feel like a kid again going to see a most excellent movie.  Maybe because of it's enourmous size that makes me feel so small, or maybe it's all the old men who sit next to me and ask me where my parents are, what ever the reason, I love this theater. Sound quality can be a bit lacking in these days of techinical, Dolby, scientificalness...but I don't care, I even love the seats that have gone crooked from having obese Americans sitting in them. Yay Chinese! (not to be confused with the Chinese Six next door,...
