Go to The Chinese Theater and skip this one. Our tour guide was great and knew his stuff. There’s just nothing to see inside. It’s a new venue with no character and no memorabilia. Picture a conference center with a theater- and that’s the Dolby....More

We went to the Kelly & Ryan after-Oscars show at the Dolby on Monday, March 5, 2018. The Oscars set was still in place - just gorgeous. The theater itself is beautiful and the seats very comfortable.

We had 1 day in LA. We parked at the Dolby Theatre and walked around Hollywood Blvd. We didn't do a tour but enjoyed seeing the red stairs. There is a great view of the Hollywood Sign from the balconies in the courtyard.

I enjoyed going on a tour of the theatre, to see where the Oscars are held! It's a beautiful theatre, and it's nice to see it in person.

The chance to see where the Oscars is hosted is amazing and it houses one of the real Oscars that has been donated to the theatre. Great couple of hours for movie fans.

You can take a tour of the facility plus the theater is located in a shopping/restaurant area that is very popular with tourists. Lots of street artists on Hollywood Blvd. in front of the theater. There is parking underneath.

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 :-)

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!
