TCL Grumman’s Chinese Theatre
The TCL Chinese Theatre is a renovation of a historic and iconic vintage 1927 theatre on the Hollywood Walk of Stars. Equipped with all of the technological marvels of the IMAX Experience, including digital projection, laser-aligned sound technology and an enormous, curved screen spanning both from floor to ceiling and wall to wall, providing moviegoers visiting this remarkable site with one of the world’s most immersive cinematic experiences. With the blessing of both the Los Angeles Historical Theatre Foundation and Hollywood’s Historic Resources Group, the TCL Chinese Theatre partnered with IMAX Corporation to introduce one of the largest IMAX auditoriums in the world. The revitalized cinema luxuriously seats 932 people, and hosts the third largest commercial movie screen in North America.
The theatre renovation was designed by BBA Architects and the General Contractor was Moorefield Construction. The project is a seismic PREFOAM System and was constructed in 2013.
