Dolby Theatre Reviews
The Dolby Theatre is the venue of the annual Academy Awards ceremony where Hollywood's rich and famous will grace its halls to receive their Oscars. It is adjacent to Highland Center shopping mall... more »
Cute show ... love Jimmy Buffet songs! Easy parking although paying in advance would have been better. Good acoustics at the Dolby. Audience didn't have much energy for a Saturday night though. more »
The tour is only about 30 minutes and is really an empty theater....but...the one for the Oscars. You see where the red carpet will be, then into the main theater, sit in the seats, go on stage, and follow the route that winners go to meet the press after their win.If you love movies and watch the Oscars...this is great. Otherwise, it is just a very large, well designed theater.
Kind of amazed inside of a maze at this giant outdoor mall complex, but the theater itself is fantastic. Be forewarned that the upper levels are very steep, so if you are scared of heights this may not be the best section for you. The acoustics are very good, as you might expect for a theater name Dolby and it's a beautiful place overall. The concession stands and bars are well-stocked and staffed.
