The Hollywood Palms greets you with, what else? Palm trees and lots of them! The owner flew down to the nurseries of Miami to personally select two semi-trucks full of lush tropical plants which are featured in our huge three story tall glass conservatory. Look out for bamboo, real South American Coffee Trees (those are the ones with the coffee beans), Hibiscus, Bougainvillea, Fig Trees, Mangroves, three species of palm trees (watch out for falling coconuts) and more from as far away as the Middle East, the Philippines, the Congo, Madagascar, and the Amazon.
You'll also catch site of the box office with the thatch and bamboo roof, but below you will see the structure is made from 200 year old Afghan Tribal Columns and an intricately carved antique door from Nepal. After you purchase your tickets, you'll continue on, walking under 150 year old Indian archways and make sure to notice the two equally old hand-carved teak elephants with pounded sheet brass covering their mammoth one ton structures, also from India. The two lobby bars are also made from antique columns and arches from both Nepal & India with more 200 year old Afghan tribal columns on the back bar. Sit back, relax and have a cocktail with your favorite movie stars (you'll see what we mean) and peruse our collection of classic movie posters from the golden age of Hollywood while you wait for your movie to be announced.
Then travel to the usher stand, framed by two huge elephant doors decorated with hand-carved skulls from Indonesia and Jamaica. Once your tickets are taken, you must make a choice - go right or left to your designated auditorium or just stand there in awe of our two stories tall, sixty foot wide, cascading waterfall.
Then there are our highly stylized auditoriums we have become so well know for. Just walk down the halls covered with large black & white photos of our favorite classic movie stars and pick a movie.
