Def. book a show at the Pantages... this is a goreous theatre and it seems to be fully refurbished as all the historical details and decor seemed to be polished and shiny. (also loved the show 'book of Mormon')

I'm an off and on season subscriber here because I like the theater so much. Unfortunately, I don't always love the line-up of shows, otherwise I'd get tickets every single season. The art deco design never fails to fascinate and amaze me, even though I've been going here since I was a kid. Beautiful.

The Pantages is one of the classic theaters still in existence, and the renovation a few years ago was really well done. It is worthwhile to come a bit before a performance to be able to walk around the lobby areas and appreciate the architecture. Unfortunately, the acoustics are still poor. Even if you're not hearing impaired, do rent one... More

The theater was packed which was fine as the seats were comfortable and the entrance and exit methods were well thought out and it was easy to arrive and leave the theater. The ushers were knowledgeable and helpful. My only complaint would be that the theater has been crumbling and is only now being repaired so tickets have an additional... More

Came here on Thursday, 4/10/14 to watch The Book of Mormon. The Venue: The theater itself is charming within its retro decor and historic architecture. The space is big, but not huge; therefore, it does feel crowded if there is a full house, as it was when we attended, making it almost impossible to walk around without bumping into each... More

I saw "The Book of Mormon" at Pantages. I attend a lot of theatre and Pantages is the best venue. It is a beautifully restored Art Deco theatre. I sat in the balcony, and it looked to me like there was not a bad seat in the house. Acoustically I thought it was great. I look forward to a return... More

I'd been here before and enjoyed it. Drove up from San Diego if though I could have seen the show in San Diego. Nice places to eat close by. We ate at 33 Taps and enjoyed it Parking close by. And there are some hotels nearby and they vary a lot.

The Pantages is one of the most glorious testaments to elegant theater architecture and design. The interiors are so beautiful that one could spend time just gazing and admiring the details. Four of us were able to grab orchestra seats for the production of The Book of Mormon after trying unsuccessfully to get reasonably priced tickets in New York and... More

What a gorgeous venue. This was our first time there and were impressed by the ambiance of the theater. Plenty of cocktail lounges and I like the fact you can take drinks (non-alcoholic) and snacks in to the theater. Seats were comfortable and had a great view. Only real issue is the restrooms. I have never had to wait almost... More
