The TCL Chinese Theatre back in 1989
Whenever people come to Los Angeles for the first time, a trip to the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX is undoubtedly on their itinerary. The iconic Hollywood movie house turns 89 years old this coming Wednesday, May 18. To celebrate, the theater offers special 10-cent bags of popcorn (the same price as 1927) during the 7 p.m. showing of Captain America: Civil War.
The cinema palace was first named Grauman’s Chinese Theatre during the silent movie era, and since opening its doors in 1927 has held three Oscar ceremonies, hosted countless film premieres and welcomed huge stars as they’ve placed their hands and feet in the cement of its forecourt. The TCL Chinese Theatre team has installed new stadium theater seating, technology upgrades and audio-video enhancements, refurbished the main lobby and made it the largest IMAX theater in the world – one of only seven to have laser.
If you still haven’t seen the No. 1 movie in the world, Captain America: Civil War, why not see it in the world’s most famous movie theater May 18? Settling into one of the plush red seats with a 10-cent bag of popcorn couldn’t sound more inviting.
