You can take a tour of the facility plus the theater is located in a shopping/restaurant area that is very popular with tourists. Lots of street artists on Hollywood Blvd. in front of the theater. There is parking underneath.

All in the same vicinity as the TCL Chinese theatre and the walk of fame stars. Worth the visit inside. They have tours that run during the day.

I guess when you are in Hollywood the Dolby theatre is a must. Was a rainy day so didn’t enjoy it to the full extend. Worth the visit.

You can press your nose against the glass but you will see very little, just a dimly lit lobby. You need to book the tour to see anything useful :-)

I ate most of my meals at Mel's diner, a couple of blocks away. Great food & they had Groupons available at the time I was there so it was also a great deal!
