“Cirque is closed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

unfortunately Cirque is closed and no longer available as a attraction in Hollywood. It was good but there just weren't enough guests during the week to make it a financially viable operation. Alas, art suffers for profits. But so it is. If you are looking to do this show they please make alternative arrangements. There are a lot of bars around here which can be very "exciting" at night. Cheers

“It's so so good! Definitely go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

We went awhile back when the show first opened. I splurged and got seats in the third row close to center but left a little. My husband is not the theater, dancing/singing type but he LOVED it. We both did. It's the only Cirque show we seen and I know they are known to be good, but this one has to be one of the best. We rented one on HD Blu-Ray and everything paled in comparison to the event we experienced.

AS usual, any Cirque du Soleil show is outstanding, and this one aptly centred around the movie industry does not disappoint

“Fantabulous...Amazing...worth every penny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

When your imagination takes you places you have never been before...and when your eyes fool you you that you do not know if you are looking at a theater or a movie or a combination ..when you see the beauty and new limits of the human body ...you know you are watching a fantastic show....I give it 10 stars not just 5....comparing to zumanity..by cirque du soliel ..this is 2 times better.
