The Hollywood Downtowner is Walking distance to the famous Pantages Theatre. The Pantages Theatre, formerly known as RKO Pantages Theatre, is located at Hollywood and Vine on Hollywood Boulevard. In the heart of Hollywood, on Hollywood Boulevard, right down the block from Vine Street, stands the Pantages Theatre. It's a fitting location: The Pantages has become one of the greatest landmarks of Hollywood, signifying both the glorious past and adventuresome future of the world's entertainment capital.
The Pantages has a history as grand and diverse as the stage and screen fare which audiences have flocked to enjoy there for half a century. These days it's one of Los Angeles' leading homes of legitimate theatre (the five highest-grossing weeks in L.A.'s theatrical history were all shows at the Pantages) and a favorite "location" for tv shows, movies and music videos. In the past, it has been a movie house, with live vaudeville acts between features as well as the site of many gala premieres and "spectaculars." For ten years the Pantages Theatre was the home of the glittering Academy Awards Presentations.
The Pantages Theatre is located at 6233 Hollywood Blvd, between Vine and Argyle Streets. From the Hollywood (101) Freeway, exit at Hollywood Boulevard and proceed west four blocks. The theatre is on your right, on the north side of Hollywood Boulevard just past Argyle. The Pantages Theatre is also easily accessible by Metro Red Line by exiting at the Hollywood/Vine Station, located directly across the street from the Pantages Theatre.
