    I've been coming to this theater since I was a kid and it never disappoints. Took my Mom to see Cabaret, it's my 3rd time seeing it over the years, this was by far the best cast. Life is beautiful!

    An absolute classic in Los Angeles. I've been going to musicals and shows here since I was a kid. It's beautiful inside. Parking is available in multiple lots in the area!

    Lovely theater! Snap a few pictures in the lobby. A warning - no pictures in the theater, so be fast if you're the rule breaking type. Cheap and yummy dinner across the street at Chicken Dijon.

    A beautiful building and a must for the latest from broadway. Parking is tricky but you can usually find a lot a couple blocks down on the cheap.

    Take the metro if you can. Hollywood and Vine station is directly across the street. Saves a ton of money on parking.

    Mezzanine is actually really good seating. We've had season tickets for a few years now and even though orchestra is nice this view above the stage is phenomenal.

    I saw The Phantom of the Opera there twice and it was amazing. I love this theater. They really bring their shows to life and you have a great view regardless if your in the balcony or the floor!

    Great shows & Seats in the first rows from the left. Parking is cheaper and better than others so arrive at least 40min before the show cause there is a waiting like amways Or use the valet parking.

    Beautiful Art Deco theater for touring shows. The balcony seats are pretty far away, but it’s still great. The lobby is spacious and very cool.

    The art and the architecture are amazing here. A lot of the Disney musicals and the best of Broadway play here.

    My mom has season tickets here, so I can usually get into sold out shows. Overall I'd call it good, nothing spectacular, but it has Broadway-class musical theatre. It's what you expect.

    I have been to many performances here. The best seats are the benches in the lobby. It is beautiful inside but they need to remodel the seats. Better seating at The Ahmanson or La Mirada Theaters.

    Love this theater. It is in the Hollywood hub. Great shows. If purchase on Goldstar, request sit together or seats may be separate.

    The no photography rule goes for phones too. If you want to try to take a picture of the stage without flash before the show, go for it but chances are the ushers will yell at you.

    Acoustics are great, architecture is beautiful and Metro station across the street makes theatre very accessible.

    When Howard Hughes bought the Theater in 1949, he was in it for the long haul. The aviator has been seen countless times by employees, walking through walls to where his old office would have been.

    The Pantages was once owned by Howard Hughes with his personal office on the second floor. He sold it in 1954. It would be purchased by Pacific Theaters in 1967 who would restore to its former glory.

    They have the 'no photography in the theater' rule which is out of date for cell phones, should make it no flash photography at all & none at all, of any type once the show starts.

    There are 3 bars inside the Pantages! Stop in for a pre-show drink and feel like its Broadway. The pours are worth the price.

    NEVER listed at TKTS. Buy tickets from box office instead of online to avoid having to pay the extra fees when you order online ($60-125 depending on ticket price).
