Found Photo: Grauman's Chinese Theatre

Grauman's Chinese Theatre, circa 1940s Posted by Hello

This is a 1940s snapshot photo of Grauman's Chinese Theatre that I recently found in a local antique shop. The Hollywood movie palace, built by showman Sid Grauman, opened in 1927 and is still in operation today. Perhaps the most famous aspect of the theatre is its outer forecourt, where hundreds of movie stars have left their foot and hand prints in cement tiles. If you look closely, you can see World War II sailors and other tourists in front, checking out the tiles.
