I have visited this theatre twice and its AWESOME there are large varieties of Broadway shows like phantom of the opera and west side story per season and the best part of this is that they have a bundle price so if you decide to watch five shows in one season its 50 to 60 percent cheaper. The theater it self is a master piece and they have great sound and viewing quality.

They used to do the Academy Awards from this theatre. The lobby is not terribly notable though the sculptures give a hint that this facility has a notable history. But what I liked best was the great chandelier and lighting inside, especially if you are sitting in the balcony. There are not a lot of these movie palaces left, and this one comes highly recommended.

As a couple of Brits visiting LA, we went to the Pantages Theatre to see Rain - a better than average Beatles tribute band (all the shows at this theatre are rather mainstream and middle-brow). The real draw though, was the theatre itself, a must-see pinnacle of art deco splendour and exuberance. The lighting, acoustics and sightlines are excellent, but while they allow photos in the lobby, they employ a lot of annoying little twerps to stop you taking photos in the main auditorium (fair enough during the show, but what's the harm otherwise?). As with most LA attractions, the staff were unfriendly, vapid and insincere, and unless you get to the rest-rooms pronto during the interval you're stuffed. Worth it for the decor, but the management and staff need work.

You pop out right in front of the Pantages when you take the Red Line. Lots of great restaurant choices within walking distance. Then walk into the most beautiful theater with great acoustics

Great venue. Has wonderful shows. I've seen quite a few of the shows held there...and loved them all...with the exception of Peter Pan.
