Ever wondered what it’s like to be in George Clooney’s shoes? Just find his footprints in the forecourt of this world-famous movie palace. The exotic pagoda theater – complete with temple bells and stone heaven dogs from China – has shown movies since 1927 when Cecil B. DeMille’s The King of Kings first flickered across the screen.

To see the inside, buy a movie ticket or join a half-hour guided tour offered throughout the day (check in at the kiosk by the cinema entrance). Of course, most Tinseltown tourists are content to find out how big Arnold’s feet really are, or to search for Betty Grable’s legs or Whoopi Goldberg’s braids.
