The Nokia is the perfect place to watch a concert. Any seat is a great seat! I love the sound quality as well.

Went to the Nokia Theater on 3-23-14 for the 1pm performance of "Shen Yun". Loved the performance. My grandmother and I paid $60 for each of our tickets. However, I was taking my elderly and handicapped grandmother with me and there was no place to drop her off!! The front was blocked off by some other deal (didn't bother to... More

Did the Grammy announcements concert here! Was a great time. Seats were AWESOME in the middle orchestra section row G. Got in easy, found our way to our seats easy, people were helpful. On commercial breaks all the tweens went INSANE trying to get up front to talk to the musicians which was hilarious to watch and annoying. Security could... More

I went there to see the People's Choice Awards. Going in through security is going smooth but there's no way to go out again (for a ciggy break) and get back in. Seats were great and the view to the stage is great, even if you're in the back. Huge monitors make sure you don't miss anything. Security is relaxed... More

I'm hard-pressed to understand why anyone thought this was a good idea: a giant entertainment complex adding more congestion to the already hugely congested junction of two major freeways in Downtown Los Angeles. Throw in the variable of rush hour and you're in for a REALLY FUN experience, especially when multiple events are taking place at the same time. Why... More

Great venue, in the active LA Live area. However, drinks are weak so ask for doubles. Parking though plentiful is expensive so consider using the Metro.

I was with a group attending a 1 1/2 day conference and found various pros & cons for this venue for conferences. Pros: -Mail floor seating was on a slope so we could see over the heads of the people in front of us. -The lighting, sound, and video were excellent quality. -Theater seats were large to easily accommodate adults...

Walking toward the Nokia, one could imagine being in a real city like Tokyo, Berlin, or New York. It looks modern, alive with people walking and interacting. Inside the theater is large and well organized. Even the restrooms were well laid out!
