Love this theatre - It's beautiful and every seat in the house is great. I've watched a few plays here and sat in different spots all of them had a great view.

The Pantages is a great old theater located at the Famous Hollywood and Vine. It has been around since Vaudeville and was one of the last Great theaters built in those days. Parking has been a problem in the past, it has become better but still little challengingly advice get to the theater early. Best seats are in the center... More

Like all venues that host plays, musicals, and other live performances, the closer you sit to the stage the more enjoyable the experience. Some however, like Radio City Music Hall, are so vast that even an orchestra seat seems miles away and one cannot see the expressions or nuances that make live theater so exhilarating. Not so here. The Pantages... More

Every time I see a show at the Pantages, I'm never disappointed. There's no real bad seat in the house, and the workers take everything very seriously. Once I was seeing wicked and a woman next to me had snuck coffee in despite food being banned from being inside the theatre. She ended up spilling it on my nice dress,... More

I have been to Pantages over many years - enjoyed many shows, but the seats are not the most comfortable in the world - designed when people were a lot smaller. It is a gorgeous old Hollywood landmark - I love the sweeping staircase, and old architecture, toilets are worth a visit just to look at ! Over the years,... More

I think this is the more famous for premieres but the Chinese theatre is more frequented and in a busier area. Good to see though and famous stars on walk of fame, just opposite

I saw my first broadway performance here and it was quite the experience! I didn't realize how beautiful it was inside. I watched phantom of the opera at the time and it totally fit the location!

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood 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.
