Official Site

After the success of the nearby Egyptian Theatre showman Sid Grauman constructed the Chinese Theatre in 1927 by architects Meyer & Holler. This grand movie palace was constructed at over twice the cost of his previous venue and is known for its grandeur both inside and out. The theatre is the origin of the famous celebrity handprints, starting with Norma Talmadge before construction was complete and eventually including over 200 concrete blocks in the forecourt. Grauman hired specialist Jean Klossner to develop an extremely hard concrete specifically to preserve the handprints.
