Molto più affascinante della walk of fame impronte e firme fatte sul cemento ma la sensazione che ho provate a vederle è indescrivibile more »Much more fascinating than the walk of fame footprints and signatures made on the concrete but the feeling I tried to see them is indescribable
Man this place is always popping. It's a major tourist attraction. On the very cement you walk on as you enter in the building are the hand prints, feet prints and signatures prints from all the Hollywood Stars from actors, singers, and entertainers. On certain days the very cement the prints are on, that open foyer is actually a place where they play free movies for the public to view. It's pretty dope.
Classic smoke and mirrors. If you are from out of town don’t be fooled. You are not getting the experience of watching a movie in the iconic Chinese Theater. You are directed to the take an escalator 3 floors up to a normal average movie theater that has the name. Once inside the theater you are welcomed with nasty stained fabric seats that look like they have never been cleaned. The chairs are a slight step above economy seating on an airplane, so comfort is basically non-existent. Does anyone take pride in their brand anymore. What happened to companies walking in excellence? What happened to a culture that fosters an atmosphere that inspires people to dream and be the best they can be?
