Doors open an hour before the show, seating starts half an hour before the show. If you have a digital ticket, take a photo of the QR code, so you don't have to wait for it to load. There is a public parking structure across the street from the theater and a public lot behind the theater. Hang out after the show by the stage door, and you may be able to talk to the actors or get signatures. If you have a handicapped placard, you may be able to find on-street parking for free, by the theater. The ADA seating is way off towards the wings. But if you can use a regular seat and just have knee problems, you can ask for a cushion (it really helps because it takes the pressure off your knees). If you need any assistive devices (including binoculars), it's cash only. No credit cards. So hit up an ATM before you get there. There are accessible bathrooms on the main floor (no stairs), so if you have a small child or you're dealing with a physical impairment, ask for the ADA restroom.
Frozen: The Musical
Stress free to take an Uber or Lyft! That's the way to go! It only took 2 minutes to get a Lyft afterwards. Easy peasy.
The weather was cool. I wore All black pants, boots and sweater, with silver grey faux fur vest.
Find a meter or free parking around Gower and Vine. Look at the Hollywood Stars as you walk to the theater.
The weather was very comfortable. I wore slacks,shirt and fat shoes.
There are a couple places to grab a quick bite to eat within walking distance.
We drove and parked in a paid parking structure. As long as you arrive early there will be room.
Always cold inside the theater, light jacket in the summer for sure.
I wore Need a sweater as it does quite cold in the theater. .
Goldstar is fantastic. I loved how it worked and very simple to buy a ticket with wonderful seats. I highly recommend using foar the Pantages
The weather was Cooler evening . I wore a Coat, sweater or wrap. I suggest definitely women bring a one as it was cold for a lot of us in our section. .
Greenleaf down great place to have drink and good meal before show.
The weather was over cast and a bit chilly. I wore I'm from the East Coast and going to the theatre (especially in the evening) is an occasion to dress up a bit. I wore a long skirt and satin fitted jacket with fancy flats(knew I'd be walking a few blocks), But everyone has freedom of choice...I saw women wearing shorts and flips to LBDs and glitter heels. .
The Phantom of the Opera
Park close to the Pantages. I was on Selma and had to walk quite a few blocks alone and to be honest, I was very uncomfortable walking. I live here but I did park on the North side of Hollywood Blvd. Definitely, next time I will reserve a parking spot closer.
There are plenty of places to dine in the area. I always opt for something very simple and visit Hollywood Burgers. The place is friendly, clean and never disappoints. There's also the Shake Shack which is another simple favorite. If you're looking for old school and a great dinner, try Musso and Franks. It's a short walk from the theater. I would certainly make reservations if you decide to dine there.
I always part at the Eastown parking garage when I visit the Pantages. For $20.00 you have the security of your vehicle being in a garage with attendants and don't have to look for other parking. Plus, it's right across from the theater. Since I discovered this parking structure, I've never had an issue parking.
The weather was overcast but comfortable. I wore jeans, long sleeve shirt and trainers..
Lots of great places to eat nearby parking before the show. If you're coming with a group you probably need a reservation. Even for the tiny restaurants it's best to phone and check.
