The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

The theater makes me feel like I'm on Broadway. We have seen three shows here and enjoyed ourselves every time. They have refurbished the theater and when you walk in you feel like you are back in 40s.

We arrived early, the show started right on time and it was beautiful, we loved it, only a huge problem finding parking, but everything else was very good.

Whether a local or a tourist visiting the Pantages for a performance is an absolute must. Incredible architecture from time gone by stuns with its sheer beauty. Should be on everyone's bucket list.

Writing a review for seats in Orchestra ZZ 2,4,6,8. DO NOT purchase these seats. They are the LAST row of the theatre directly against the wall. The floor is uneven and difficult to walk on and the leg room is far less than the seats in the other rows.

The Pantages theatre is a beautiful venue! Its right in the middle of all the action on Hollywood/Vine/Argyle. We sat in the mezzanine and felt that it was still a great view. The place is aesthetically pleasing filled with art-deco everywhere. They have ample bathrooms located in various areas for your convenience, The ushers that we came across and asked questions were very friendly. Before the show, we were reminded not to use any phones/video which was reassuring. We're here to watch a performance not people holding up their phones. As for parking, we chose to park in the Pantages theatre garage up the street, Yucca/Vine. We paid for it online and it was a short walk down Argyle street and you're at the theatre. We printed our parking receipt and showed the attendant, easy peasy. We chose the 2pm showing and we were allowed to park from 12pm -6pm. Depending on what time you leave the show, you may have to wait to leave the garage. We left right after the show, walked to the garage and got out in about 10 minutes because of the line to get out, no biggy. Additionally, the garage has tandem parking BUT you don't have to wait for the owners of the car behind you to leave. The attendant keeps the keys of the car behind you so they can move it if you arrive before the owner of that car. We didn't have to tell the attendant because he saw us right when we got in the garage. He kindly moved the car behind us and we were out of there. Overall, great experience and will definitely come back.

We saw Six: The Musical. Balcony about 5 rows back. The show was great. The theater better! What a show palace. Be warned, however, the area around the theater is the pits. No where to eat dinner either. Back to the theater - the place is a masterpiece of Art Deco décor.

The theatre was amazing as always, very helpful audience services helped my daughter when the sole of her boot broke. Six is an 80 minute musical sold at a full musical price. Great show, but the divas in the cast took one look at the dozens of young girls waiting for autographs, turned up their noses and hid inside until everyone left. Absolutely this is your choice ladies, just remember who buys the tickets and we will remember

Took my daughter and granddaughters to see the Lion King. This was their first visit and my who knows how many visits. I loved their delighted reaction when we walked in, you never forget your first view of the interior of the Pantages!
Hollywood glory at its finest, over the top, golden fantasy of Regency deliciousness at its very best!

The show was amazing, the girls loved it. The staff were helpful and so nice with the hard parts of their job with the public. They have to look through purses and carry in’s and some people were not nice to them but they carried on to the next person with a welcome and a smile! Big kudos to them for their amazing attitudes.

Can’t wait until the next time!!

Amazing theater. Beautiful interior. Comfortable seats. Large clean bathrooms. Tonight I saw Cats. The show wasn't my favorite of the theater made up for it. Ripoff parking all around. Park on the curb. Do not be lured in by one of these parking lots that has the theater name on it.
