Go support live theater in this breathtaking and historic theater! You can't help but feel the old Hollywood vibes when you walk into this spectacular art deco bldg. It's pretty fabulous. They used to hold the Oscars here from 1949-59!

Have seen many shows and the Pantages...all of them top notch Broadway shows so they are, of course, amazing. However, seeing a show at the Pantages is extra special because the theater is so exquisitely beautiful on the inside. Savor the ceiling...it's stunning!

We went to see The King and I. The theater is old and so beautiful. It's nice to just walk around and look at all the beautiful things in the building.

I've been coming here for years! We just saw The King and I last night which was excellent. Took me back a few years to when I saw it there with Yul Brynner! Wonderful!

Beautiful intimate theater. Not a bad seat in the house. As with any older building the ladies restrooms are limited. I would recommend to the management to have staff assist with the flow of patrons through this area ( the Fox theater in Atlanta had the same problem for years but this year had employees directing patrons).

I have seen several shows at The Pantages. Always a wonderful outing. The theater is well designed. No matter which section my seats were located I could see the stage and acoustics always excellent. The theater is well run. Staff is courteous and helpful. I have tickets to 3 more shows this season and looking forward to seeing them!

The theater is so beautiful! The women's restroom on the left side as you walk toward the stage is historic with lots of extra design detail. The one on the other side is not as crowded, but it is more simple. We have seen several shows over the last few years and every performance has been very well done. Just... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
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.
