Host Robert Osborne from Turner Classic Movies and your informative tour guide set the stage for the scenes you’ll visit. Just don’t be surprised if something unexpected happens along the way. Keep telling yourself, it’s only a movie.

The Movie Palace

Step back in time as you behold a full-scale reproduction of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.  Featuring handprints, footprints and signatures of some of Disney’s greatest stars embedded in the cement outside, the theater meticulously captures the pageantry of the legendary movie palace that has become a symbol of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Parade inside the art-deco-inspired grand lobby and view a dazzling menagerie of props, set pieces and costumes from classic films. It’s the perfect opening act to a show celebrating the glitz and glamour of moviemaking.

Souvenir of the Stars
After your ride, be sure to memorialize your visit with a personal photo. A large picture backdrop—complete with 2 handprint displays in hardened cement—is located near the exit of the attraction. It’s ideal for capturing the perfect scene and securing your place in Hollywood history.

Thrills and Chills for Little Ones

The Great Movie Ride may be frightening to children. Because this attraction celebrates popular films throughout cinema history—including those that may be considered scary—some of the set pieces and scenes may contain some mildly disturbing subject matter.
