We weren't planning on doing the tour of the Dolby theatre, we decided on the spot. Was worth every cent! A beautiful theatre, explained by a great guide who actually works there on Oscar nights. If you like watching the Academy Awards or want to...More

This is not to be missed. Parking is available under the building with elevator and escalator access to the complex. There are many types of restaurants from family style to expensive "white linen" ristorantes for all appetites. The fountain at ground level is great for...More

We didn't go inside the theatre but we walked around the outside. The past academy award winning movies dating back from 1940 are displayed as you walk up the stair case to the entrance of theatre.

I did not pay for the tour, as I was using a Go Card, but if I had paid, I would have felt very ripped off at the steep price. The tour was about 15 minutes, and basically saw the lobby really quickly, then saw...More

I had never been to the Dolby Theater as it has been well over a decade since the last time I was in Hollywood. I must say - I was blown away. The Hollywood & Highland center is amazing on it's own, but the theater...More

This theatre and shopping center is famous for its lobby and splendid ladder with circle balcony. The outside connect to Hollywood mall with fantastic fountain plaza with chic restaurants and perfect spot for taking photos or even selfie.

Took the tour on Friday April 7th. It was just OK. Tour guide seemed bothered that he had to do the tour. Seemed like typical information given on tour, nothing super interesting. It was nice to stand on the stage and take the "winners walk".

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!
