The Pantages theater, located in the heart of Hollywood, has a long standing Hollywood history and is a gorgeous, historical building.
The theatre was used as a cinema for many years before Howard Hughes acquired it in 1949. A few years later, the Pantages began hosting the Oscars. Fred Astaire, Bob Hope, and Jerry Lewis, amongst others, hosted on the very stage that stands today.
After a major restoration effort in 2000, the theatre has been renovated and repainted to bring back it’s 1930’s glamour.
The interior is stunning, and attending a musical at the theatre is a once in a lifetime experience. Every seat in the house boasts a wonderful view, especially the aerial views from the balcony.
If you’re willing to splurge a bit, I’d highly recommend seeing a show here.
Tickets range in price from $ 55 – $ 250 depending on the section and show. For a full listing of all upcoming shows and features visit the Pantages website.
