This theater is the venue for wonderful productions, of course, but beyond that it is a treat for the eyes. The art deco interior is breathtaking. If you have a love for architecture as well as theater, put this place on your list of things to do in Los Angeles.

I decided to get season tickets for the first time. The first 5 minutes they went on sale, I bought Orchestra seats. Three months later, I was given mezzanine seats. When I called, they said there were no orchestra seats left. I tried 3 other season ticket times, to no avail. Clearly, they overbook season tickets. Pantages is a theater,... More

Wow! What an amazing night out at this stunning theatre. We came here with a big group of dancers from all over the world to see 'An American in Paris' on its closing night. The inside of the building is just breathtaking & so beautifully detailed. We enjoyed a nice glass of champagne in the foyer bar before the show.... More

The Pantages has wonderful plays and you can order seats online for whichever one you want to see. The theater is quite beautiful. We have sat in orchestra and mezzanine seats and you can see from almost all of them. They do "not" have an elevator and if you are sitting in mezzanine you must walk upstairs. Was there recently,...

I periodically see a show at this theater and this past week i attended a great Broadway style show there. I must say that the theater itself is a must see for anyone visiting LA. The Art Deco like interior is breathtaking. The seating is reasonable but the views of the stage are good everywhere.The metro stops across the street.

My wife and I saw An American in Paris there last week. We walked in, and was amazed at how beautiful the lobby is, and the auditorirum. The whole architecture is amazing. The sound system for the show is great also.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
