Chinese Theater Santa and Elf
It can’t be Star Wars all the time for the characters in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. This time of year you would expect Santa Claus and an elf or two. This elf appears to have received an award or is about to present Santa with the award. Neither seems as jolly as our private luxury tour guests who were visiting this Hollywood sightseeing destination with their guide, Paul, who captured this very candid photograph of the characters inhabiting the theater forecourt. There is always more to be seen than a movie at this grand theater — there is history and spectacle and a good amount of Hollywood oddity. Just last week Hugh Jackman received his Walk of Fame star just a few steps away from these fellows and next week Helen Mirren will receive her Walk of Fame honor. Sometimes we can show our guests what we know is going to happen and sometimes it is going to be surprise for all of us.
