The Oriental Theater is a Chinese-themed cinema featured in Grand Theft Auto V.


It is located on Vinewood Boulevard in Downtown Vinewood, Los Santos. It is based on Hollywood's TCL Chinese Theater (formerly known as Grauman's Chinese Theater).

It is one of the most famous movie theaters in the world. The theater is probably used to show movie premiers like its real life counterpart. Oftentimes, there are people dressed as famous characters from media such as Republican Space Rangers, along with tourists taking photos of the theatre. Its operating hours are from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM. The Oriental is the HD Universe equivalent of GTA San Andreas' Cathay Theater.

According to the Vinewood Star Tours, the theater opened in 1928, which a lot of protest from the fans of the actress Miriam Turner, who wanted to take pictures underneath her dress.
