    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    when you come park in lot A, cheapest parking $10 w/ a 2 min walk, and be aggressive because of all of the old folks and tourist who want to push their way through the lines. ever heard of please?

    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.

    * Ladies Restroom - 1 on both sides of the lobby, 1 upstairs on the West Side* Mens Restroom - 1 on the East Side of the lobby and 1 upstairs on the East Side*Concession Stand in middle of lobby

    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.

    Kaitlyn Cavazos · April 6, 2013
  • Jon M.

    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!

    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.

    Superb · October 24, 2013
  • Nicholas O.

    They have the 'no photography in the theater' rule which is out of date for cell phones, should make it no flash photography at all & none at all, of any type once the show starts.

    Here's a tip for when you are in front of the theatre: check out our amazing Dining Guide in the huge glass display case facing Hollywood Boulevard! Bon Apetit!

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

    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).

    Crystal Warner · February 13, 2014
  • Michael A.

    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

    Michael Angel · July 10, 2013
  • Bradley P.

    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.

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

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