One of the original theaters where the Oscars were held. Central located at the famous corner of Hollywood and Vine streets. There is a strange, very small bar next door, full of locals, drinks are cheap and it's been there for many many years, it's worth a cocktail before the show..Have fun

Try and go here at night. There is a great deal on construction going on in the neighborhood so it is less congested after dark. A good place to walk for movie and entertainment history lovers.

This was our first time to see a play while in LA, and I have to say, I think I even preferred the venue over the play! I loved the old world charm of this enchanting theater! I also preferred the more casual vibe of the audience over the stuffy New York crowd! Tickets were reasonably priced as well which... More

We came for a show and found this venue just too large for a stage play. The cirque show last year was better using the huge stage area. We enjoyed the deco atmosphere inside.

We've seen two Broadway plays here. Each time, we felt like stepping back to classic, golden Hollywood. It is an event to attend a play here. The performances are magnificent, as is the setting.

We go to both the Ahmanson and the Pantages but love the Pantages for it's old world charm. It's beautiful and always a delight to feel like you've "gone back in time." The shows are always wonderful and the attendants are delightful and friendly. Hardly a bad seat in the house! Most recently enjoyed Dirty Dancing The Musical. Lots of... More

I had heard that the restored Pantages Theater was a Must-see - and it absolutely is! All of the glamour and style of the Twenties has been recaptured. I cannot imagine how much silver and gold paint it must have taken, but the end-result is spectacular. Although I had some difficulty booking my accessible seating, once I arrived at the... More

We hold a season ticket to the Pantages that brings in seven or so of the latest broadway touring shows, like Hamilton, every season. The Pantages is a gigantic theater, twice the size of most Broadway Theaters, and adorned in art deco with spectacular chandeliers. They have a full-service bar and concession stand with fresh cookies and other snacks &... More

Great Place, small enough to enjoy the play and not feel everyone in town is there. Did see any bad seats in the house and well taken care of.

Great performance and lots of fun. Music and singing was spectacular. The story basically follows the movie interpretation. Lots of fun. There is a tad bit of adult theme, not overboard, but I wouldn't bring a child under 12 to this performance.

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.
