“Beautiful theater!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We've been season subscribers for years and love going to the Pantages, a truly beautiful theater with consistently good productions. We saw "Peter Pan" yesterday and smiled all the way home. Since the theater is big, one should take that into consideration when purchasing tickets. I recommend orchestra seating, no farther back than Row Y for the best viewing. The left or right side orchestra are good; although, if you sit all the way against the wall there will be some obstruction for anything on the far right or left side of the stage. There is no elevator, so if stairs are a challenge be sure to sit downstairs. There's a small handicap bathroom and the other bathrooms require 5-6 steps down and back up. We often see people in wheelchairs and the staff seems to be especially helpful in getting them to their seats or location. In fact, the staff are great - friendly and helpful always. Parking around the corner and across the street runs $10-15. There are lots of restaurants and a Starbucks within walking distance.

“a great place to see shows”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

we have seen many shows here and we like the Pantages because literally any seat is a great seat. Parking is convenient, restaurants are closed by and access to the theater is great.

“Nice Theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Despite the area and parking situation, the Pantages is small yet big enough for great productions. I saw Wicked there and had the best seats and loved every minute of it. The staff was nice and helpful.

“Historic Hollywood Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

This art deco masterpiece has recently been restored to maximize a wonderful theatrical experience..Comfortable seats a ,handsome interior,and spotless facilities. The sight lines are great and the sound clear. The theater has a great history including hosting the Academy Awards back in the day. The theater books all the recent Broadway hits and great revivals. A great place to enjoy the theater at it's best.

Nice little theater. I enjoy it because it is a personal experience. Seen quite a few performances there and every time the stage display has been great, seats are comfortable and bathrooms are clean.
