Every time we visit the Pantages to see a show, we are mesmerized by its grandeur -- from a bygone era of elaborate opera houses!! The theater itself is opulent inside, and it also hosts some fo the best plays and other shows in tonw on regular basis. We have been regular visitors for over 25 years!!

You can rely on the Pantages to have a great playbill each season, shows that have been on Broadway and have made their way to LA. The theater is a grand old place that's been kept in fine shape. It's always very crowded, and parking is always a challenge, but if you're a theater-goer, especially for musicals, this is the... More

This theatre has a certain charm due to its historical significance and décor. It is not a "fancy" theater and it's not particularly well maintained. But, for a modest theater experience it serves its purpose. It is well located on Hollywood Blvd with ample eating choices in the area. Be aware there are not enough restrooms at this venue and...

If you are into plays or musicals this is a great place to visit. Check for tickets beforehand as they tend to sell quickly. Sometime you may get lucky the day of. They put on some great shows and it is such a beautiful venue.

This historic theatre with its' art deco interior is a great place to see live theatre. Not a bad seat in the house. If you are coming from a distance stay across the street at the "W' hotel. Great bar scene and makes for a great getaway.

I come here so often to watch musicals, I might as well live there. The staff working are always extremely friendly and the theater is beautiful as always. I love the musicals choices lined up every season and I always try to make it to Pantages to watch my favorite musicals. I just wish there were more restrooms available to... More

Have been going to Pantages for over 30 years. A wonderful Hollywood building in Art Deco style. Most major productions appear here at some time or the other. Acoustics are good. Seating is nothing special. My only gripe about Pantages concern the women's restrooms which are woefully inadequate. The lines at intermission have crowd control barriers to try to organize...

I buy season tickets every year to the Pantages. Other than being one of the most beautiful historical buildings in Los Angeles, the Pantages brings in some of the most talented traveling theater troupes in the country. I have yet to be disappointed in a single performance. My mother and I enjoy one show a month. It's such an enjpyable... More

The theatre is absolutely beautiful, you just can't help but be mesmerized by it. It feels historic and a bit like the old world. They always have the best shows in town and they're really good ones. I just didn't really like seeing people show up to the amazing shoe and theatre in shorts or jeans. It didn't feel entirely... More

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.
