This Chinese Theater with its pagodas and temples is certainly one of the strangest buildings in Hollywood. This place has almost been a holy location to some movie fans. In front of the Chinese Theater there are the hand prints of some select actors and singers that are supposed to be the most famous and greatest stars. Sidney Grauman built this place in 1927 and that's way many of the prints on the ground say "Thanks Sid" or "You're the best Sid" etc.. You'll see many tourists searching for their favorites like Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe. This is also a must see while in Hollywood, and also a mystical place.
