For the Guided Tour, you can collect badges by visiting each L.A. location in person. You will receive one for each location as you get close to that location. Each location has its own number. You can see how many badges you’ve collected on the start screen. Have you got what it takes to visit everyone of these amazing locations in Los Angeles? If you do, and can collect all 100 badges on the LA-based tour; you will receive a special prize from TCM.
For the Self-Guided Tour, if you cannot be in Los Angeles, you can still take the tour virtually and collect badges for this tour by viewing each Hollywood location. Each location has its own number, so explore by neighborhood or browse the list view. You can also use the play button and forward/reverse controls in this tour to explore all the locations in a gallery view.
We hope you enjoy the TCM Hollywood Tour app. If you would like to send us feedback on this app, please visit http://www.tcm.com/contact-tcm.html. Safe travels!
