Strategically nestled on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame on the Hollywood Boulevard, TCL Chinese Theater came almost as an afterthought. After a successful venture with the Egyptian Theatre, Sid Grauman acquired a long term lease on of a real property on 6925 Hollywood Boulevard. He then commenced to hire Meyer and Holler Architectural Firm to design a Chinese style theater - and thus, the TLC Chinese Theater was born. The multi-million dollar theater has hosted most of the big names in Hollywood and beyond.

The TLC Chinese Theater boasts the third largest commercial movie screening equipment in the US. In partnership with IMAX, it has introduced a new auditorium with a capacity of 932 people, a good enough crowd for any movie screening.

Its location makes it a superb place for couples to catch an evening movie and then walk along the inspiring Hollywood Walk of Fame. With all the good restaurants that lineup the boulevard, a couple will be spoilt for choice on where to have a superb dinner. You can even make a reservation and make the dinner more romantic by having candles lit.

After the TLC Chinese Theater completion in May 1927, it premiered the King of Kings; a film by Cecil B. DeMille's. It has since premiered other films, hosted corporate functions and had 3 academy awards to its name. The most distinctive feature of the theater is the signatures, footprints and hand prints on its fore court. This insignias are from major entertainment personalities that has graced Hollywood since 1920.
