Beautiful venue, like stepping back into the glamour years of Hollywood. It's takes a lot of people but it's fabulous. Be warned we bought what I consider expensive seats on the mezzanine floor and they were up with the gods. It's an experience, so unless you book early and pay big don't expect great seats. Really enjoyed the Carol King... More

I got to attend 'Beautiful - The Carole King Musical' here on a Friday night. The theatre itself is breathtaking and it was especially fun to see some celebrities walking the red carpet prior to the show. Parking was relatively easy to find and cost $20. Ushers were great. Really fun night on the town in Hollywood.

The Pantages is a magnificent venue to enjoy live theatre in Los Angeles. We've attended many productions there over the years. It typically gets most road productions of recent Broadway plays within a reasonable timeframe (which we define as a year or so). The historic building's Art Deco stylings and appointments are a definite bonus for architecture fans. Its location... More

Went to see Beautiful, great tip is to use metro link, you can avoid traffic and there is a stop right across the street so no parking or traffic issues.

the Pantages is old and it shows on the inside. came to see wicked and was surprised at how dated it is inside. seats were not comfy and the lines to the restroom were long. i think it can use a little facelift being in hollywood and all.

Attending any event at the Pantages is a Wonderful experience, can't even remember how many shows we've attend over the years. It's a gorgeous theater, like stepping into "Old Hollywood".. a small venue where almost every seat is good. Haven't had a bad one yet. The only negative, as always is the horrid long line at intermission to use the... More

Have been going to amazing performances here for 40 years. The theater is GORGEOUS. Plenty of places to eat all around before the show. The pantages really cares about how you like the show and if you are on their email list, right after the show they send an email for you to comment! Who does that, right? Just to... More

From the outside, the Pantages looks a tad seedy but once you step through the doors and are seated your eyes will feast on the magnificence of the brilliant Art Deco interior. You are immediately transported to a bygone era where opulence was the standard. The Pantages is a landmark in Los Angeles that hopefully will remain a treasured one.

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.
