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

We've seen multiple shows and Pantages. It's well laid out - there really is not a bad seat in the house; great acoustics, seating, stage, sound, and lights. More, this is where the theater talent in LA performs.

You can't hear spoken words and singing is over powered by orchestra. Wondeful show tonight - Jersey Boys - except for terrible sound system

We are on our 3rd year of season subscription and have never regretted it. Love the productions in an absolutely beautiful setting. Go to the downstairs bar to the left when you come in - cool music and awesome bartenders!

If you go to the box office, maybe it's only Sundays, not sure, about 2 hours before curtain time, they have a lottery. You put your name "in the hat" and they draw out tickets. If you are one of about 15 winners, you get your tickets for $25. I noticed that the non-winners were also given a good deal.... More

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!
