(hover over any section below for a row-by-row breakdown)
Hollywood Pantages Theatre Seat Numbers
The center sections at the Pantages theater have consecutive seat numbers, and the right and left sections are even and odd number, respectively. The higher your seat number in any of the right or left sections (including right center and left center), the farther to the side of the venue you will be.
Orchestra Seating at Pantages Theatre
The Orchestra at the Pantages theater is much larger than your typical Broadway theater, stretching across 5 sections. While there are no obstructed or partial view seats in the orchestra, you should try to avoid the left and right sections, as the angle to the stage will be a bit extreme, and the acoustics will also be a bit worse.
The ideal place to be is in the center orchestra sections between rows E-P. It is the optimal view of the stage as well as clear acoustics. It is important to note that there is very little slope to the seating so you should try and score an aisle seat to clear up your sight-lines.
Because of how little slope there is, the double lettered orchestra rows are much farther from the stage than a normal theater and should be avoided when possible.
Mezzanine Seating at Pantages Theatre
The Mezzanine at the Pantages Hollywood is really more like a balcony. It is much higher up from the orchestra than a mezzanine level typically would be. The mezz hangs over the orchestra section at around row T. The acoustics aren’t as great towards the back of the mezzanine, so the closer rows are definitely recommended. Just like the orchestra, there are no partial or obstructed view seats in the mezzanine level.
It is important to note that row A in the mezzanine should be avoided because there it very little legroom. Rows B-H in the center sections are the best options in the mezzanine level and are preferable to the double lettered rows in the orchestra
Hollywood Pantages Theater Reviews
“The Pantages is a large venue mostly for traveling musicals. It is almost worth going to just to see the classic interior. It was originally one of the original classic movie theatres that has been restored to perfection. That said it is very large and there are some poor sight lines. If you get stuck behind someone a little taller than you it is difficult to see. Also the sound is hit and miss. With some shows its good and with some its either too loud, too soft or not very clear. Still if you want to see the show playing there – go and enjoy”
“The Pantages theater is an historic movie house converted into a live theater venue. We recently attended Motown the Musical and were pleasantly surprised by the exceptional condition of the venue. The interior is beautifully maintained. We found the sound system to be very good despite having had some sound issues in the past. There is ample parking around the theater as well as great dining choices nearby. The theater is located to the east of the busiest parts of Hollywood Blvd. and very near to the freeway making for easy ingress and egress.”
