Reviewed March 31, 2013

This was a good surprise, we were visiting the area attractions: Chinese Theater, El Capitan and the Walk of Fame - and we went just for a quick peek at the Kodak Theater (now Dolby Theater).At its main entrance, we noticed a sign telling about the tours - 30 minutes length and $15 per person. They have a tour for each half hour, starting at 10am. It was GREAT: first, you start visiting the area they never show during the Oscar's TV broadcast - the entrance lounge, the stairs for the different areas of the venue. After this, you have a chance to walk inside the theater, around the stage, etc - it is amazing. For last, the guide will show the "winner's walk" - what happens after the winner gets the Oscar. Important: no restrooms and no video / photos during the whole tour.

There was a group of maybe 20 of us on the guided tour of the theatre. It is mainly used for the Oscars and it was interesting to see the history behind the awards ceremony.

The tour lasts around 30minutes and they tell you a lot of interesting facts (for example where the term 'silver screen' comes from and how the Oscars got its name). They take you into the VIP room, and the actual theatre. You get to go backstage and do the journey up to the press room that the winners do.

There is no picture taking inside, but at the end of the tour they give you a postcard of the interior.

Took the guided tour. Our group was small and the guide, Justine, was great. Everyone could clearly hear her. She works there during the Oscars so she was able to give us many information and anecdotes about that special evening. I found the tour much more interesting than I expected. Worth doing.

Again, this place is iconic because of the Oscars. Otherwise, it wouldn't even be on this list. It's just a regular mall with nothing special to see.

We watched Iris and we loved everything, the theater and the show, my kids loved it, they kept their eyes wide open during the whole show, even my 7 yo. It's a must see if you go to LA.
