Director Tim Burton placed his handprints and footprints in cement in the courtyard of the TCL Chinese Theatres on Sept. 8. The ceremony was held in conjunction with the release of Burton’s “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” on Sept. 30. Burton is widely regarded as one of cinema’s most imaginative and visual filmmakers. He has achieved critical success in the action and animation genres. Besides Burton’s dedication to filmmaking, he enjoys drawing and painting. His most recent directorial work, “Big Eyes,” for which Amy Adams received a Golden Globe, is a confluence of his two passions, film and art. Burton is also known for classics like “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “Ed Wood,” “Corpse Bride” and “Frankenweenie.” The TCL Chinese Theatre is located at 6925 Hollywood Blvd. For information, visit www.tclchinesetheatres.com.
