Love the decor of this retro theater! Had no issues with acoustics. Seats were comfortable. Intermission food & drink were passable, but not great. Parking is a challenge around this area and the restaurants are not stellar near this theater. Location is appealing for tourists who want to see the "stars" on the Walk of Fame.

My husband and I vistied the Pantages Theatre to see Jersey Boys during our visit to LA. The Theatre is stunning inside however the acoustics were a luttle under par and the sound quality of the show was disapointing. Didn't enjoy it as much as when we saw it in Vegas in a more modern, purpose built theatre, but still... More

The very wide Pantages stage presents many sight line issues for most national tours which are designed for more standard, less wide prosceniums. CANNOT RECOMMEND PAYING FULL PRICE FOR SEATS IN THE FAR LEFT OR RIGHT SECTIONS OF THE ORCHESTRA or for ANY sections of the REAR ORCHESTRA. Once you're past row Z -- you're just too far away from...

I bought tickets the night before the performance for the Jersey Boys. We went to the 1:00 pm showing, which was perfect, so we could also walk Hollywood Blvd for quite the experience of people watching. There is a new building on the corner of Hollywood and Argyle that charged $10.00 for the day, this is a GREAT price. I... More

My spouse & I had Seasons' Tickets for many years to wonderful productions of Musical Plays, etc. Seats & Acoustics are very Good! But, Parking is around the corner, on side-street Parking Lots. It's worth a little "walk" to attend the "Pantages".

Love this venue. This theatre really doesn't have a bad seat. Once inside you feel like you have stepped into a grander era. One where people dressed up to go to the theatre and glamour was in style.

Pantages Theater on Hollywood Blvd is a classic historical theater to see a show at. We enjoyed seeing Jersey Boys at the Pantages; it was well done and enjoyable night out.

A great venue for shows, good line of sight from every section and no problems with the audio. The decor is absolutely over the top and you can spend the entire intermission just looking at the ceiling. If you choose to go get a drink there are enough bars that the lines aren't impossible. Parking can be a little daunting.... More
