Saw a matinee of Cats and remembered how I really enjoy this place. A throwback to the Art Deco age the Pantages has modernize without compromising its past. Outside the theater Hollywood has started to clean up its act which helps keep the Pantages relevant.

You know how going potty during intermission is a race against time? So much pressure to get through the line and get back to your seat in time for show to continue. Doesn't help when as soon as you enter the lobby ushers are yelling...More

Love the ornate architecture. This is how a theatre should look and feel:-) The only thing I didn't like is the temperature was too warm.

So I didn't give it a 5 star, only because you cannot take drinks to your seats. Overall though it would be a 5 star. The place is amazing, and the seating is good. We were directly in the middle for the show about half...More

This is a stunning, historic theatre, and the closest you can get in the West Coast to having a theatre experience like New York City’s Broadway or London’s West End. The shows are very high quality, and so are the audio and the ambience. However,...More

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

We bought at the theatre box office, but if you are looking to attend a particular show I’d go on the theatre’s web site.

Depends on what is playing and the actual scene involved and how tall the person is in front of you. Best to get aisle seat towards the center. Sound is good in all seats.

We took Lyft to and from Pantages to see Book Of Mormon. Full house and we had no problems with getting a ride there and back. Didn't have to wait long before we were picked up at the end of the show.
