Although the Pantages has been both a live theater and large movie palace, its role as a host of touring Broadway productions and other large acts allows it to play a significant role in the LA cultural scene. With the demise of the Shubert several years ago, only the Ahmnanson remains a real rival. But the Pantages offers a sense... More

Wow - what a venue - everything you expect from a Hollywood theatre, it really doesn't get any better. The production of Phantom is first class, the stage set an absolute mind blowing design with excellent special effects. We had a truly wonderful and memorable evening out.

Been here to watch Hair and Q. The place has lots of history in it but the best part was the audio of the theather. Its not over powering. The place is cozy too.

Our favorite venue for theatre in LA. It's very accessible with several excellent hotels and restaurants nearby. There are no bad seats in the house. The annual play offerings are consistently top notch.

We went to see the most recent rendition of Phantom. The Pantages is a wonderful venue with lots of history. There is lots of nearby parking and plenty of restaurants nearby.

This was wonderful. The show was great and the theater was gorgeous. The lobby of the Pantage reminded me of the lobby in the Phantom of the Opera movie.

We've seen a few performances of Broadways shows at the Pantages, and have enjoyed every one of them. The theatre itself is a beautifully restored Art Deco theatre, so you get a sense of history as you are sitting inside watching the performance. During intermission, I caught myself thinking how many people have performed on this stage since it first... More

I went to see The Phantom of the Opera on July 25. The production was superb with some spectacular special-effects and a stunning set design. The venue was also very impressive. This is an historic theater set in the heart of Hollywood. Gigi won Best Picture here in 1958. The acoustics are fine and the theater itself is ornate and... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
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.
