I had seen a few musicals here in this theater like Wicked, Phantom of the Opera and I would say that the interior of this theater speaks of Old World glamor and nostalgia! Love to come here again to watch a musical with friends!

The Disney Company purchased The Pantages in, as I recall, the late 90s in preparation for the "Road Show" of "The Lion King," They did a great job. It is a stunning venue. An homage to Art Deco. Just standing in the expansive lobby is a treat.

Unfortunately the play we decided to see there (Ghost) was not worth the money we paid for it BUT just going to a play inside the Pantages was worth the money. Gorgeous, breathtaking decor, and historic to boot.

No matter where you sit, the view is great. No matter what you see, the surroundings are amazing. We had a wonderful time and look forward to our next visit.

If you want to see Hollywood at its over the top Art Deco best, you want to see the Pantages designed by architect B. Marcus Priteca. It was the last theater built in the Depression by vaudeville impresario Alexander Pantages.

The Pantages is my Favorite place to see a show. The LA metro will let you off right across the street. The history and architecture of the building is breathtaking.

Stepping into the Pantages Theatre is a step into everything grand about the Hollywood Experience. It is a MUST for each trip to LA! The hottest musical "Once" did not disappoint and I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. The exquisite decor and chiseled grander that engulfs this setting is sheer elegance. No wonder may premiers... More

I'm not going to review the show, "Once" although that was why we were there. It was just okay for various reasons. Luckily for me, I've been able to see several shows there over the last few years, and I'm looking forward to many more. I always try and start with the bad stuff then get to the good stuff.... More

Have been to the Pantages many times to enjoy Broadway musicals with the family. It's a gorgeous interior the beautifully carved ceilings take you back in time. Always look forward to returning.
