About Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

Dorothy Chandler Pavilion Tickets

Part of the Los Angeles Music Center alongside the Ahmanson Theater, the Mark Taper Forum and Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion’s grand five-story performance space has been the site of countless luminaries from the worlds of music, theater, opera and dance. Built in 1964, the auditorium still retains much of its “Mad Men”-era charm, its elegant chandeliers, wide curving stairways and glitzy décor harkening back to an older, grander L.A. Home to the Academy Awards ceremony for much of the ‘70s and ’80s (and as recently as 1999), the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion is now the permanent residence of the Los Angeles Opera.

Advisories

All attendees must have a ticket, regardless of age.

The weather was cool. I wore casual dressy but some were in fur and bling.

There are a couple of venues at the Music Center, so it might get a little confusing if you've never been. There are people around to ask to make sure you're headed in the right direction. The elevators inside the opera house are slow. We sat pretty high up in the balcony. The view was still good, considering.

There are snacks and drinks for purchase. There are also restaurants nearby, but they're pricey. Consider dining before you go.

They have a large underground parking structure. Arrive early. I drove down several floors, but the parking attendants were good and the traffic within the lot was moving at a good pace. I can't remember on which level I parked, but I had to walk a bit to get to the stairs/escalators. I appreciated that everyone was moving quickly.

I wore nice pants and blouse, not too dressy, not too casual..

Unless you give yourself enough time, it is not worth it to eat at the main Patina group restaurant. One does not want to have to wait for a table or cram in at the bar and then rush. Not at those prices where you can't experience the taste. They may as well put a Denny's there.
