Loved the Musical play of Motown at the Pantages theatre, worth going to. Easy parking if you go early, and plenty of stars on the sidewalk to look at.

The theater is architecturally lovely. It is a great throw back to an era in Hollywood when glamour was key. It is a glamorous place to see a show. Unfortunately, they pretty much only book nationally touring musicals, so there isn't a lot of variety in what is shown. The only other down side is the lines for the rest... More

This is a cool old theatre with a lot of character. We had a great view and loved the show we saw. Seating was a bit cramped.

The Pantages is a classic art deco theater. The sight lines are excellent and the acoustics are great.

So, I've visited the Pantages several times, but not recently. I was taking my mom (who is, well, aging) and wanted some info that, no matter how much I checked, couldn't find. So, here's the nitty gritty. Parking: I was tempted to pay early online for parking because walking is tough for her, I already know parking in Hollywood is... More

A friend invited me to see Motown at the Pantages. I hadn't been to that theater in over 20 years. Boy, was I glad I went. The theater is drop-dead gorgeous, from the amazing lobby to the main hall, to the bathrooms. I could hardly take my eyes away from the ceilings and walls. It is THAT spectacular. Then came... More

I have had the pleasure of seeing many sensational performances at the Pantages over the years: Book of Mormon, Shrek, Chicago, Lion King, Wicked, and so many more! Pantages is THE classic venue for catching a Broadway show in Los Angeles. While it is smaller than some theatres, it creates an old-school, elegant, intimate experience for the audience. A few...

Beautiful theater! Had the pleasure of seeing Wicked with tickets front and center. No sound issues up front and we had a great view. We were able to park down the street for $10. Would recommend using the restroom beforehand. . lines at intermission are LONG. Overall a great experience though!

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.
