The building is iconic. Like the Hollywood Sign, like the Walk of Fame, like the Capitol Records building, our private Los Angeles tour guests want to see these landmarks no matter what else we offer to show them in Los Angeles. Thus a beach tour from Marina del Rey to Malibu or from Santa Monica to Redondo Beach will almost always see us heading at some point into Hollywood. As cliched as it may be to photograph our families standing in the courtyard of the 1927 structure known for its Hollywood movie premieres and famous courtyard strewn with celebrity signed cement hand and footprints, we pose our groups in several locations around the building and get wonderful “greeting card” shots for their tour albums. No matter who they share the photograph with those viewers will know exactly where they have been. At the same time we tell stories about the handprint ceremonies and suggest a 20-minute walking tour inside the historic theater where Hollywood history blends with the latest in digital theater presentation. The newest IMAX Laser projection system can be seen by the largest IMAX audience in the world (932). No wonder film industry leaders want to premiere their movies in this veritable temple of the film gods.
