The Pantages Theater is one of the most famous Los Angeles locations. This Hollywood landmark hosts everything from traveling shows to musicals like Wicked and Hamilton. The venue itself is stunning, with intricate ceilings and sconces. When the Pantages opened in 1930, it was home to vaudeville shows and movies, then became a movie theater after the Great Depression and even hosted the Oscars in the ‘50s. In 1977, the theater was converted into the live entertainment venue as it’s known today.
