Over 75 years ago, movie theater mogul Sidney Patrick Grauman set out to create his dream theater and to this day the architectural masterpiece he created is one of the desirable venues for studio premiers. Grauman convinced film director Moon Quon to come over from China to direct the decoration of the theater, which includes temple bells, pagodas, stone statues, and ten foot tall lotus shaped fountains, all of which were imported from China. Even the entrance with its red columns and its 30 foot stone dragon, is impressive. See a movie here, but don’t forget to pay your respects to the sidewalk outside where you’ll find the cement hand- and footprints of the stars.
