You’ll also be able to visit Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, which has famously hosted the glittering premieres of many huge movies, including the 1977 premiere of Star Wars! The theatre has even hosted three Academy Award ceremonies.
And, of course, you must take the time to head up to the Hollywood sign itself!
