We were there in 1999, staying at the nearby Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel (also worth a visit BTW, if only just to stroll through and take a few photos…it was where the first Academy Awards were held). Anyway, since it was right there we just had to stroll over and check this place out, we spent a fun hour or so taking pictures, putting our hands where “so and so’s” hands once were, standing where “so and so” once stood. Look for the cast of Star Wars…R2D2’s “footprints” are classic.
The day we were there we just missed by a few hours seeing Susan Sarandon put her handprints in her square….we felt so sorry for the poor security guard who had to sit there literally watching the cement dry (to guard against vandalism I suppose).
Mann’s is right on the Hollywood Walk of Fame too…so if you’re up for the whole kitschy Hollywood experience, it’s all right here. A fun way to spend an hour or two. Don’t forget your camera!over 4 years ago
