The Hunger Games Hand/Foot Print Display Open At TCL Chinese Theatre
Starting tonight (Thursday November 19th) The TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX (formerly Grauman’s) will have the cement hand/foot prints of Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson on display in the lobby along with the shoes they wore during the October 31st Ceremony for “Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2”. The three stars were the 289th, 290th, and 291st movie stars to be immortalized with a hand print ceremony at the iconic movie palace.
After the final Hunger Games film stops screening at the TCL Chinese Theatre the cast-in-cement prints will trade their current home in the theatre lobby for eternity in the historic forecourt. The display will also feature multiple photographs from the ceremony. No other movie theatre in the world can duplicate this display and it’s a fun add-on for die-hard fans coming out to see the final installment of the franchise in the LA area. To see the handprints up close and personal all fans need to do is buy a ticket to a screening or take a walking tour of the theatre. Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 opens tonight, November 19th at 7pm and is presented in IMAX Laser.
