In order to appreciate the Pantages one needs to go inside. As far as I know, tours are not available but tickets to performances are. Seeing the beautiful art deco interior with its plush seats is worth the price of a ticket. And, the shows are almost always popular, first rate productions.
The Pantages opened in 1930 as the last and largest movie house in Hollywood. It interspersed first run movie showings with vaudeville acts then later dropped the vaudeville acts. Since 1977 it has presented only stage productions. The Pantages hosted the Academy Awards ceremonies from 1949-1959.
At one time, the then not yet reclusive millionaire Howard Hughes had his office on the second floor.

If you get the opportunity to see a production/play at the Pantages Theatre, GO!! It is an old piece of Hollywood Glam that newer facilities don't come close to capturing.

LA gem! Wow the inside of the theatre is gorgeous with high ceilings and artistic finishings fitting for some of the top musicals. I saw Jekyll and Hyde here and the show was amazing. They stage sets were creative and staff was friendly. Great talent goes through here every month and worth a visit.

This palatial art deco theater, formerly known as the RKO Pantages Theatre, opened in June of 1930 as part of the Pantages Vaudeville Theatre Circuit. The theater underwent a $10-million restoration and upgrade in 2000, and today is one of Los Angeles’ leading venues for live theater. The theater has recently presented large-scale Broadway musicals such as Disney’s The Lion King, and hosted the long-running Los Angeles production of the Broadway musical Wicked.

My favorite place to watch Musical Theater. The venue is Beautiful! and right on the famous Hollywood. The line up is always has great and interesting shows. Parking can be easy but pricy around $10-15. The cheapest way to get to the Pantages is by Metro which stops right cross.

The art deco theater dreams are made of. Owned by the influential Nederlander family. A gorgeous chandelier hangs above the audience every night here. Many Broadway national tours come through this theater.

Book of Mormon playing.
This theatre is so pretty with enough seats to fill up almost 3000 people. The show was amazing and the songs were so good that I wanted to go sing with them on stage. Loved the performance and supporting the arts.
