The Dolby theatre is a great place to watch a concert. Despite the fact that that this theatre hosts the Oscars it is not nearly as big as you would expect - there are some of the downtown LA theatres that are bigger than this....More

It wasn't on my bucket list of places to visit in Hollywood, but it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Standing on the stage and looking out into the theater was amazing. A must see.

Backstage tour of the Dolby Theatre where the Academy Awards (the Oscars) are held. We walked down the staircase, onstage and along the corridors, saw past winners' photos and a real Oscar. The Theatre is actually a lot smaller than it appears on television. Great...More

We just walked around the outside of the Dolby Theatre to look at the winners of (I think Picture of the Year) that won each year. It's a beautiful building and home to many awards shows and events throughout the year.

If you're taking a tour of LA - the Doby theater is a place that you will want to include. We (me, my husband and teenage son) took the tour of the home of the Academy Awards - much to my surprise - we each...More

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

Can we enter the Dolby theater just to look around or must we take a guided tour?

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!
