Named after vaudeville impresario Alexander Pantages, this place is the last of his reminiscent. Alexander Pantages, like many other buildings, has made this a theatre that has become a part of Los Angeles’s cultural identity. The architect behind this one is B Marcus Priteca. For the longest time, Pantages showed some really classic movies and today it runs first shows of various films. Initially it showcased a lot of vaudeville work, alternating with movies. But after the great depression, it opened up as a movie theatre due to the economic restraints that it faced. Today, it is a full-fledged entertainment spot and is definitely worth catching a movie at!

Pantages Theatre Reviews & Ratings

  • This is such an iconic theatre. Built in 1930 a must see venue. Came to see Anastasia this evening. Sadly wasn't my kind of show. Preferred Beautiful which I saw last year here. The staff are lovely. Park down the road. And don't be all "once you pop you just can't stop" cos the toilet queues can be long! 😉

  • When you imagine going to the theatre, this is where your mind attempts to create. The lavish art deco design transports you to a glamorous era. Every nook and cranny is filled with beautiful design. I've seen The Phantom of the Opera and Anastasia here and both times I was completely blown away. Only the best productions get a chance to run here. The stage production is on a level I hadn't seen before. A combination of well animated screens perfectly hidden in the set and large, well executed set pieces, emerse you in the production. Reasonably priced concessions and helpful ushers only add to the experience. Tickets can be found at very reasonable prices and last minute most of the time. If you haven't seen a show here, give yourself the gift of the experience.

  • It's an Art Deco theater with great seating almost anywhere. Prefect theater for a concert, a play or a musical. There's a Metro Train station conveniently located across the street. Parking can be a little difficult to find or it may be located a good walk away. Overall, beautiful place to visit!

  • I recently had a chance to visit Pantages Theatre for the first time with the family and witnessed one of the most beautiful theatres around L. A.! This is truly one of the gems that everyone should visit once in their lifetime. The interior architecture and decor can easily make one feel stepping back in history and also welcomes everyone like a celebrity! Powder rooms are also gorgeous and carefully adorned with details that are incredible. Look forward to visiting again in the future~

  • I love this theater, it's so darn pretty. Getting to it is a nightmare but with the parking structure that opened up in the mall across from it, parking is super easy and that's a plus. If you have tickets for a show, they will park you in VIP so it's ready to get to the theater and then it off the structure. I really love that. The theater is an icon, it's ceilings and decor are just beautiful. It's not too big, so any seat is a pretty good seat, though I prefer 1st row center in the mezzanine. Best seats as far as I'm concerned. Food and drink is as expected, expensive and not great but there are plenty of great places to eat around the Theatre that make making a day out of it worth it - though it's not in the best part of town, so don't drop your guard just because it's touristy and if you're taking kids, get a feel for the area first. It's not horrible, please don't get me wrong, but it is a VERY, VERY busy area and not all of it is child appropriate. The Pantages is a must - go for any theater fan, so GO! And enjoy!
