I went to see Motown and the King and I and enjoyed both musicals very much. The seating is great and enjoyed the venue very much. It is well decorated. During the intermission there are several bars in which you can by drinks. The parking is great, there is a structure across the street.

The sound was perfect, seats a little tied but didn't bother me because of the excited I was. The people there are very nice and help... More

The Pantages is a must see in L.A. Very few cities in the U.S. have theaters anywhere like this restored Art Deco masterpiece. And the shows they bring in are top quality.

The Pantages theater is an historic movie house converted into a live theater venue. We recently attended Motown the Musical and were pleasantly surprised by the exceptional condition of the venue. The interior is beautifully maintained. We found the sound system to be very good despite having had some sound issues in the past. There is ample parking around the... More

Very simple. The most beautiful of all the older grand theaters in Los Angeles. The renovations make this a must see for anyone coming to Los Angeles.

Saw Motown the Musical last night and truly enjoyed it. The sound system is excellent. The only negative is that the seats are not staggered enough so if you're a short person you might have a problem seeing the stage. I prefer sitting in the mezzanine. There is convenient parking just across the street where there is also a variety... More

I saw a few shows here and must say that the sound and caliber of talent that has graced the stage of the Pantages was superb! Carole King's Beautiful, in particular, was excellent! The Pantages offers subscriptions and well worth the price.

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.
