Great show and theatre

Just saw Hedwig and the angry inch. Fun musical, great songs, super cast! Enough it's in Hollywood, the theatre is in great condition. Friendly staff.

We're season ticket holders at the Pantages and very liberal about content. Ignore the fact that it is basically a one man show about a transsexual from Germany with very Bowie esqe attributes, especially the wigs. It's simply a very bad rock parody, with fair music and simply no plot or story line. My family, ranging from 29 to 60... More

We went to see an amazing icon, Charles Aznavour, who at age 92, performed an amazing concert there. It's a lovely venue with charmingly nostalgic feel. Our first time there, won't be our last!

Yes, the Pantages Theater represents the aura of Old Hollywood. The theater is very beautiful, with all the accoutrements of yesteryear. The shows are wonderfully performed. One must be careful of seating as there are certain areas where the acoustics are poor.

We just sat Cat Stevens at the Pantages. We sat in the front fow of the mezzanine and had a great unobstructed view of the stage. The show was fantastic. Parking was nearby, drinks were expensive and the merchandise lines were almost as long as the rest room lines. Actually, it was a teriffic evening and at least the 2nd... More

This is a gorgeous art deco theatre. Really not a bad seat in the house. If you live in the area you can take the Metro red line to Hollywood and Vine and it's right across the street from the station. I love this theatre!!!

This is a beautifully restored classic theatre. It is a beauty just to visit, and their season subscription is a great deal and includes shows fresh from Broadway with incredibly talented casts.

An iconic and lovely large theatre in Los Angeles; with it, comes long lines -inside and out.Give yourself extra time and don't expect to use the restroom or bar reliably. We saw Cat Stevens/Cats Attic recently and the performance and staging were terrific.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood 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.
