    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

    They no longer offer rush tickets, but they DO offer tickets that start at $25! Every seat's a great seat. Definitely my go-to to see a show <3

    They have the 'no photography in the theater' rule which is out of date for cell phones, should make it no flash photography at all & none at all, of any type once the show starts.

    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.

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

    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.

    If you are in any part of SoCal and are looking to see a traveling Broadway production, make the effort & go here. It's a better experience!

    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).

    Watched Phantom for the very first time here in 1997 and got me hooked. Love coming here still! Go see IN THE HEIGHTS before it's gone. So fun!

    Book of Mormon was a lot of fun, but nothing less than $20 to $25 for parking in the vicinity? That's outrageous!
