About Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

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.



All attendees must have a ticket, regardless of age. There is no late seating. Seat assignments will be made by the box office in advance, and you will be assigned within the section you purchased. Seat assignments are final and you will not be allowed to upgrade seats on-site. The main supertitle screen above the proscenium is fully visible from the rear loge. It is not, however, visible from most of the seats in the orchestra ring section because of the overhang of the founders circle (1st balcony). There are two additional supertitle screens (one audience right and one audience left) underneath the overhang to accommodate orchestra ring patrons. Orchestra ring seats are not obstructed. The supertitle screens are simply in a different location. For event information please contact 213-972-8001.

If you are looking for inexpensive eats, there is a Burger King and Subway Sandwich within walking distance of the music center. Food on the Plaza is a little pricey.

Parking at the Dorothy Chandler is kind of a nightmare. It is very easy to get confused when trying to find your car if you end up parking on the bottom floor. Make sure to pay special attention on how to get back, we searched with two other groups of people who couldn't find a way to their cars in the same area until we all finally figured it out!

There are open areas for you to eat a picnic if you choose. However, if all the items are not disposable, you will need to take them back to your car. There are also several places to eat in the immediate area of the Music Center
