6925 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90028, United States

Original Debut: In 1927, theater developer Sid Grauman set out to do no less than create the most opulent movie palace the world had ever known. America’s fascination with the Orient led him to adopt a Chinese theme, with authentic temple bells and pagodas imported from the country itself and a 90-foot-high entryway guarded by a giant hand-carved dragon.

Now Showing: Some four million annual visitors still come to pay their respects to the theater’s glitzy Chinese statuary, copper-topped turrets, and infamous Walk of Fame (where Marilyn Monroe’s delicate pump-prints, Brad Pitt’s handprints, and scores of others are preserved in the cement outside). Its iconic status makes it a shoo-in for film premieres (He’s Just Not That Into You, The Wrestler, and Che all had their first showings there).
