TCL Chinese Theatre

<p>Catch a flick or take a tour of the TCL Chinese Theatre (also called Gramman's Chinese Theatre or Mann's Chinese Theatre) on the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard. Having opened in 1927, this place is a quintessential spot for soaking up some Hollywood history and was declared a historic cultural landmark in 1968. Outside the theater you'll see the handprints and footprints of film and television greats like Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, and Fred Astaire. The interior of the theatre is breathtakingly stunning and an incredibly fun place to see a movie. The new theatre is the largest IMAX auditorium in the world and the third largest commercial screen in North America.</p>

Hollywood Bowl

<p>Those beautiful Hollywood nights throughout the summer months were made for the Hollywood Bowl. The Bowl, opened in 1922 and has been entertaining residents and visitors ever since. It is the largest natural outdoor amphitheater in the country and hosts musical performers from Willie Nelson to Vampire Weekend. The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra plays at the Hollywood Bowl as does the Los Angeles Philharmonic. One of the coolest things about The Bowl is the fact that you can bring your own food and drink - sit outside and sip on wine and munch on cheese and crackers as you listen to the melodious tunes. Arrive the The Bowl early and swing by the museum on the premises to learn more about its history before seeing the show.</p>

The Magic Castle

<p>The Magic Castle sits on Franklin Avenue in Hollywood majestically and mysteriously. The stoned mansion was built in 1908 and beckons passerby in with its mysterious charm. The castle is a private clubhouse for the Academy of Magical Arts so it's not all that easy to get in. You need to get invited from a guest or join up yourself! Classes are offered at the castle, as well as performances and opportunities for dining. The shows are intriguing, with five different shows going on in three different showrooms: The Close-up Gallery, The Parlour of Prestidigitation, and The Palace of Mystery.</p>
