Minutes away from our hotel, in the heart of Hollywood, on Hollywood Boulevard, right down the block from Vine Street, stands the Pantages Theatre. It’s a fitting location: The Pantages has become one of the greatest landmarks of Hollywood, signifying both the glorious past and adventuresome future of the world’s entertainment capital.
The Pantages has a history as grand and diverse as the stage and screen fare which audiences have flocked to enjoy there for half a century. These days it’s one of Los Angeles’ leading homes of legitimate theatre (the five highest-grossing weeks in L.A.’s theatrical history were all shows at the Pantages) and a favorite “location” for tv shows, movies and music videos. In the past, it has been a movie house, with live vaudeville acts between features as well as the site of many gala premieres and “spectaculars.” For ten years the Pantages Theatre was the home of the glittering Academy Awards Presentations.
From Broadway hit musicals like Shrek The Musical and Wicked to popular family shows and well known classics such as La Cage Aux Follies and Mamma Mia, The Pantages Theater offers a world of fantastic entertainment. So make your stay in Los Angeles extra special with tickets to the most popular Los Angeles shows.
