This is modern theatre hall which holds many Oscars presentations. It has a very stage and audience hall. When we were there for the Guided Tour, we saw the Setup for America Got Talent. Impressive!

This is where the Oscars take place. The tour was short finished in just 30 minutes but was very informative. Always wondered what the Oscars venue looked like and was rather surprised to see that it was in a tiny mall. It does look extraordinarily...More

It is located in a shopping mall, so there is underground parking lot and it is not expensive. You can buy tickets to a guided tour and visit the actual theatre, walk where stars walk. Tours are approximately 20 mins length and you feel a...More

I had such high hopes but they were dashed. This tour was awful. You're barely allowed to take any photos. On my particular day, we were not allowed anywhere near the stage. We were shown the outside of the winner's walk - but couldn't go...More

This tour was super cool and my 15yo daughter loved it too. So interesting to see where the Oscars are held, where the red carpet lies, see an Oscar up close, sit in the theater, and see all the pictures and dedications to Oscar winners....More

Once you visit Los Angeles as a tourist, I think Hollywood, Dolby Theatre and the Stars are a compulsory stop. Nothing new, but just the environment worth a visit. You can park in the mall for just 4$ if you buy something in the mall....More

42 dollars to enter the 2nd floor of the theater and show the stage. Do not waste your hard earned money. If the tour had shown backstage, show how good the sound was , or basically anything it would be interesting. Spend your money elsewhere

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

You can press your nose against the glass but you will see very little, just a dimly lit lobby. You need to book the tour to see anything useful :-)

They are quite close to each other, tour of the Dolby Theatre is truly 'behind the scenes' plus commentary about the Oscars and you stand on the stage. Chinese Theatre foot and handprints are outside, I'm not sure if you can... More

I ate most of my meals at Mel's diner, a couple of blocks away. Great food & they had Groupons available at the time I was there so it was also a great deal!
